Densities of monogynous red imported fire ant (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) colonies in Georgia pastures


, : Densities of monogynous red imported fire ant (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) colonies in Georgia pastures. Journal of Entomological Science 29(3): 367-369

Eighteen counties in Georgia were surveyed during the summer of 1993 for colonies of Solenopsis invicta. The results suggested that of 270 sites surveyed, there were an average of 66.6 active colonies/ha throughout the State. Densities of S. invicta in individual pastures ranged from 0 to 213.9 active colonies/ha.

The social forms of the red imported fire ant, initially discovered in Taoyuan County in 2003, were determined based on Gp-9 allele identification. Both polygynous and monogynous colonies were found. It was also found that, in almost all of townsh...

The first occurrence in Florida is reported of polygynous colonies of Solenopsis invicta. Most but not all queens were inseminated, and the average number per mound was 20. The existence of such colonies was indicated by unusually high densities o...
