Mating Flights 2014

Post by dermy on Wed Aug 06, 2014 2:56 pm

Now is the time that the Ant Mating Flights should begin, although it's been a really slow year for ants around here, I thought we could post the Date that you find those large winged ants [or wingless] which are new queens ready to start colonies of their own.

I've only seen Camponatus species flying in May, but I didn't get any dealates so I didn't bother to get any queens  Neutral

Still nothing as far as Queen ants goes, I'm just glad I decided to save that colony, or I wouldn't have any ants this season. I plan to over-winter them and take them out of hibernation a bit early, hopefully three months worth of hibernation is enough. If anyone [Myrm] knows if this isn't enough please tell me!

Well done, Dermy. Good work. I hope they will raise successful colonies for you. Smile

Sorry, Dermy, I didn't see this post that you made last week. Yes, three months of hibernation is fine. Smile

Thanks, wasn't sure, if that's all they need that's great, I can wake them up early!

We should be seeing something flying around here at least once if not twice before the season is over!

Doesn't the vary cold days in between cause them proplems?

I hope not! I think there should at least be Lasius neoniger, flying since this is the time they do so!

I've seen ants fly at the end of September before so I think ants around here get used to the weather, I could be wrong though.
