And how long should I let the vaseline dry for?
Vaseline? Why is that there and where did you put it? (I'm a complete beginner)
I'm guessing it is used to make a slippery surface so the ants can't climb up.

Re: New Ant Queen Introduction

Its up to you if you want to move them. Personally at this point I would not risk it since you have been very successful so far.

Formicarium Suggestions?

Re: Pill Bugs

I fed a pill bug to my Myrmica queen and she kind of ate it, but it wasn't her favorite. Also when I pre-killed the pill bug i noticed it was mostly just shell and not a lot of guts. Does your queen have nanatics or workers? If not you do not need to feed her because Camponotus are fully claustral.

Re: New Ant Queen Introduction

It is possible that they will join the other queens colony. However their is always the risk they won't and will fight. If you don't plan on taking this risk you can at least save the brood with a moist q-tip and put them with the other colony. Are there any warning-signs other than pure fighting? ...
