The perfect beginner species!- Lasius americanus is North America's version of Lasius alienus, a relative of the European Lasius niger. These form massive colonies and are one of the more classic ants to keep out there! We carry two forms of these queens- macrogynes, which are large queens and produce more eggs, and microgynes, which exhibit the ability to found colonies with multiple queens, though it is not a particularly common occurrence.
