  1. Can you join the OhioAnts discord server here: https://discord.gg/rR6hHvk? It's much easier to ID when we can talk back and forth without much hassle.

  7. Ok, so me and a few others have decided we want a ranking system for all the ants in Ohio. The system will be based on 4 categories: rarity, appearance, care, and hardiness. Each category will be out of 25 points, and they will be added together for a final score out of 100. I'll put the list here, and update as we decide. So lets get ranking!

  8. No problem, I saw you joined. My screen name is Mad Biologist. If you want to be updated on when people are talking, just turn on notifications.
  9. I'll be doing an experiment with a large number of Camponotus nearcticus queens with a few other members on here. I'm hoping to get some parasitic Formica queens started this year, but my biggest goal is to catch a Camponotus americanus queen. You should join the Ohio antkeeping discord, it's way more active than our forum. Here's a link: https://discord.gg/MyqbK8g
  10. My favorite native species is Camponotus americanus, and camponotus are my favorite in general. My favorite exotic species is Dorymyrmex gigas, just because of how large they get, but in reality, if I had to pick I wouldn't be able to to just because there are so many cool species.

  12. While the picture isn't good enough to identify species, it does look like a queen ant. If you want species identification, take some more pictures with good light, and head over at the discord link: https://discord.gg/MyqbK8g
