I have always found Chichester to be heavily populated with Lasius niger and L. flavus, and the odd Myrmica rubra nest; but today while out shopping in Homebase with Jen, we saw a lot of black ants running around in the grass by the footpath.
On closer inspection these ants turned out to be Formica fusca. This is the first nest of this ant specie that I've ever seen around here, so it was a nice surprise to find another ant species has made a home in a Lasius dominated region
:PWell done wood! Is it a new colony? Did nobody stare at you weirdly when you had your nose in the ground looking at them? I did it once and everybody around started whispering about so I decided to get lost!
Many thanks for visiting our ant keeping world today.
