Re: new ant id

I think it's a queen. She is a lazarus. Only saying that cause I can see her legs and antenna are yellow. no worker ants I know of have that trait. I'd say I'm 98.9 percent sure. Nice catch btw

Re: brood boosting Question ??

Re: Camponatous maybe??

Also don't add any bedding. They are fine in test tubes ir anything that can keep them hydrated clean and warm. Out her in a test tube set up. Look it up if you don't know what it is and let her be in the dark. Seeing she is campo I say you can look at her 1 or 2 times a week.
