This is my first year anting and I remember seeing a few posts from people in my state interested in starting out. I'm making this to help out others and myself.
I was able to catch a Camponotus pennsylvanicus. last week in Virginia Beach but it was by happy accident because she was part of a small colony already. I think they were in the middle of a move at the time. I was taking down a shed today though and found a pretty huge colony with lots of male and female alates. If Camp. pennsylvanicus. isn't flying yet then they should be soon judging by what I saw today.
