In July 2017, there was a huge flight of Formica. I caught about a dozen Formica subsericea, and a few Formica subaenescens queens.
I ended up selling or giving away all but two, and I now only have one, since the workers in the other colony beheaded their queen.
I also caught a Formica aserva queen last year, and actually got a colony started, but then, yet again, sold her to someone in Milwaukee. I plan to catch some of the more obscure species of Formica this year.
P.S. If I catch Polyergus, I will include it in this journal.
Here are some pictures of the colony I have now. The queen decided to never take her wings off, and these are indeed her workers.
I will update this journal when I can, I hope the queen will lay eggs soon.
