Western Thatching Ant (Formica obscuripes) on Feb 5, 2011
Submitter does not have a specimen
Description of specimen
ants with red heads and black bodies
I saw a mound of red headed ants (IFA?) on a log along the path that goes out to New River from Lower Fourmile Lane, just before 86482 Lower Fourmile Lane, where the parking lot and sign is. A lot of people and animals use that path, and don't know if these are the aggressive fire ants or not.
