    I tried to start a colony a year ago, didnt turn out well All the queens i caught died, and the lack of experience killed the one i bought. This year i caught two queens. Both haven’t laid eggs yet, but other than accidentally rolling one of the test out of its covering (dumb, i know) i haven’t made any mistakes yet Heres hoping

    I have been looking for months and I have had no luck again just like last year I have seen one briefly until my brother ran over it on his bike for a 'joke' if anyone can give tips or help in any way I would be very grateful. Thanks Edit: I also have considered buying but I would have no clue where to buy from. I dont know how people do it lol they just go on a walk and find queens! I dont think there is any more nuptial flights in the UK at the moment and if there were I doubt I would catch one 😂.

    I think those two massive ant colonies are actually genetically related Iike one of them had a queen that made its nest just right next to the other one.

    Nice colonies. You should come back early in spring, they all warm up on top of the nest: idreporter.net/v/video-pcAJKlofBng.html you can even spot the queens if you are lucky.

    We have this one kind of ant that looks like the Flavus species as well. I live in Michigan USA, across the pond as you may say. May even be the same species that could have hitched a ride on some ships when we were still a British colony.

  52. Ants Britania

    Ants BritaniaTahun Yang lalu

    I have heard of the ant you speak of! I think it may be Lasius Claviger aka the citronella ant? That is a great speculation! Perhaps they have set up their own little British colonies ;-)

    My catches for this month: Formica Fusca, Temnothorax Unifasciatus, Camponotus Ligniperdus, Unidentified Myrmica sp. and for my suprise, I managed to find whole colony of Leptothorax Acervorum in a rotten branch. For the Formica worker you found 20 meters away, Its no surprise. They are know to forage up to 50 meters away from the nest, which is an impressive distance for such a small ant.

  56. Ants Britania

  64. Ants Britania

    Ants BritaniaTahun Yang lalu

    TheS I’m sorry to hear about your Camponotus Ligniperdus Queen. I recommend introducing your umbratus queen to a couple of Bruneus workers. Perhaps not the colony, as she will kill the queen :-)

  65. N00bPlays

    N00bPlaysTahun Yang lalu

    Ants Britania True, but i'm not in the UK. I'm in Austria. My Camponotus ligniperda died in a weird way. Hope there is still something I can take. Currently i have a Lasius bruneus colony and a umbratus queen... Do you think its going to be good to let the umbratus take over the bruneus colony?

  66. Ants Britania

    The other best is probably a satellite nest from the same larger Formica nest. The species you are talking about that steal brood are sanguina . There are some awesome sanguina colonies in brooklands on the top of the hill climb track.

    Near my house, we have some Formica (probably rufa as there are a few redwood trees near them) nests and they are almost a meter tall. One of them however, is built into the roots of a fallen tree and it is nearly two meters tall! Also, can anyone tell me when the Formica/lasius nuptial flights are?
