Lasius flavus 1 - Boudicca (Deceased)

Post by laziusniger on Mon Aug 10, 2015 4:53 pm

Fished out of the pool after an early August mating flight, I did my one week check on the three queens and found that Boudicca had sadly passed away. When I'd found her, she had a dead Lasius niger worker attached to her leg - I don't know whether the stress of this did her in or whether she absorbed too much chlorine from the pool.

Recategorising these to Lasius flavus as, on review, they have that yellow-gold cast to their abdomen as opposed to the niger's silver-brown.
