I got this ant many months ago, during late August of 2012. I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Also, I thought I got 6 ants of the same species since they all look identical. However, *I do not know the terminology for the following!* - One queen of mine has brood that made cocoons, and this one did not have brood that didn't form cocoons... Not sure which ones I'm allowed to call pupae. Does that change from species to species or is it the Queen's choice?
