These ants are
sometimes called black ant or garden ant.
Lasius Niger is a very common ant here in switzerland.
There is a similar species in the USA called Lasius Neoniger but it is not nearly as successful as Lasius Niger in Europe.
Lasius Niger is a very adaptive ant that forages also in houses.
They are famous for the impressing nuptial flights.
See how I keep them with many pictures.

Anting in the Field
When you go anting in the field you can learn much about ants.
I try to find out what species of ants live in my vicinity.
Many images, pictures, habitats, identifying, preserve, mount.
My Leptothorax Nylanderi (Acorn Ants) are easyer to keep then Lasius Niger
Lasius Niger are very able architects.
As I am interested in the behaviour of ants
I have done some experiments:
How do you mark ants? what are the techniques and difficulties?
How lasius niger controls large territories. what are outposts? what are distributed nest modules?
an other experiment concerning territory. lasius niger controls large areas.
