Queen number in a supercolony of the invasive garden ant,Lasius neglectus



Queen number in a supercolony of the invasive garden ant,Lasius neglectus



Insectes Sociaux 51(3): 232-238



We have analysed the distribution of queens under stones at the core and at the periphery of a supercolony of Lasius neglectus that occupies 14 ha at Seva (NE Spain). Queens were not found alone, but rather within worker groups. Density at the center (mean s.d.: 1.38 2.87 queens/stone; n = 100 stones; range 0-14) was not different from density at the periphery (1.18 2.38; range 0-12). The estimate of the number of queens found under stones for the whole colony is about 35500.
