Species Information:

Lasius flavus do well at room temperature when kept in captivity.

Mating flights are usually large and prolific in summertime and many Queens go and found colonies. Lasius flavus hibernate through the winter and wake from hibernation around late March. Hibernation can be achieved by reducing the temperature of the nest to around 10 degrees Celsius but not any lower than this.
