Brief Summary

Read full entry


Queens emerge from hibernation in mid to late April. Nests are constructed from grass stems and other dead vegetation, either on the surface or slightly below ground. The old nests of mice or voles sometimes form the foundation, and the colony may only number fewer than 100 workers. However, nests can survive until late September.
