Don't know, probably depends where in London, because if it's in the city centre then I doubt it. Unless there is a decent sized field or park with enough food to support them, but even then there might not be because there is a little wood that could sustain ants near me but there appear to be no ants there.
Dermy: Keep your eyes open for Lasius queens from now until late September. They should be hard to miss.

Myrmica rubra flew yesterday, I saw a Queen today but it escaped before I could put it into the test tube. I also caught a Lasius niger Queen today. It was still winged but was wandering around my front door. I did see a lot of "flies" this morning though. Could have been Queens.
