Alright, so around my block all together there are probably about 30-40 Pheidole colonies . I have never known about it until recently. SO today I went hunting and was thrilled to find a queen ;D. with about 50 workers and 10 majors. It was a dream come true I love these ants . But when I returned home I was nearly in tears to discover my queen was gone! I didn't know how this was possible I do think I squished her while closing a lid :-[. So my new mission was to find a queen which I did and was jumping with joy . And here she is all in nice and snug.

Nice find Caydenn. Keep us updated as to your new colonies progress and I hope they settle in and do well for you At least you can always boost this colony with brood from the other wild nests if you wish to
