Your letter to the bugman:  I’ve seen plenty of queens but never found one in the process of leaving her wings behind! I thought you might like to see. sadly my video didn’t turn out well, but I got these pictures of her that aren’t too bad. (my camera isn’t made for macro, sorry!)
How you want your letter signed:  Michael

Thanks so much for sending your image of a female Carpenter Ant shedding her wings.
