Yeah we have had not so big flights either. I think it's the weather. But if you go out sometimes you'll still find a queen here or there. I like that better then big huge one day flights.

Hopefully something flies before winter! I used to think nature had a schedule, guess not this year!

Yes I kept quite a few of them. I have horrible luck with Lasius for some reason. They certainly aren't the beginner species for me! I like Formica and Myrmica a little better but this year I'm trying my hardest to get a Lasius Colony going.

I found a dying Formica queen [curled up twitching] and put her under a container with wet cotton, over night and now she is as good as new Very Happy
