Camponotus modoc is a very common species of Carpenter ant which lives mainly in western Canada. It has sometimes been called a Western equivalent of Camponotus pennsylvanicus, and is overall larger. In addition, Camponotus modoc has been recorded to be polygynous, though queens often each other when workers emerge. Nonetheless, true Polygynous colonies (with multiple queens) can definitely be established.  Like most Camponotus species, it prefers lower humidity from 30-50% and temperatures from 23-25 degrees Celsius. Their workers range from 7 to 16mm and queens range from 13-17mm. It's an overall large species of black ant with red legs and yellow hairs on the abdomen.
