Prenolepis imparis Test tube Colony 15-30 ninatic x 5
collected 12 females on February 24th, 2017 on a wooded path around Cobb Lake in Bluffton, Ohio. Here is a Google Maps link to the collection location.We had an unusual 2-3 days in the mid 60’s which seemed to trigger the nuptial flights. All of these were either spotted walking, or found after moving loose leaf litter.
Thinking back to the time I caught the queens, we had 7 consecutive days above 60. (63,70,64,63,63,62) Here is the weather information for the day I captured the queens.
