My flying any day is closing in, all of the local niger colonies are foraging in large numbers and building above ground, with alates peaking out of the nests.

I'm probably going to see a Formica flight here soon, or something I hope. I did see a wondering Myrmcia Queen but I didn't want to take it.

I have no clue! It's supposedly in the Fusca family. We have a lot of Parasitic Formica too.

Omg guys, I forgot to post an update on here. Look who I caught late to the party. She must be exhausted after wandering around all that time. I found her on the pavement. Hopefully she's mated:D

If something Flies yes, I want something bigger then Myrmica but not as slow growing as Camponatus something like Formica or Lasius.

I don't think so we get mainly Myrmica, Formica, Lasius Camponatus [already flown] and then Parasitic Species but those are annoying to raise.

Yeah and there might be others but these days I can't go outside much anyway. Lucky if I get once a week then it's just a trip to the store to get coffee.
