OK I have just found out that the woods on my land have hazle nut trees and that their are 100's if not 1000's of colonies in the nuts on the ground. I have collect two colonies. One colony has about 25 adult ants, 10 eggs, 15 larvae, and 5 pupae. The other I am not sure as I did not open the nut all the way. Their is a large brood pile in it and I have seen at least 5 adults poke their heads out of the hole in the nut. Once I finish the formicarium for them I will get a better count of them. I will also try to get some good pictures of them as soon as I get a camra that can take good enough pictures of them.
