Emergency!

Every two weeks I check my ants in hibernation, I come to one of them and the mild is crazy and they have no water! I need to transfer them fast but they won’t move... any help I need to do this as fast as possible!

Re: Plastic naturalistic

Both dirt/ substrate in the bottom and out world on the top! It is a little squishy but not so bad.

When and how without fridge

Hey I’m keeping some colony’s in test tubes (ones in plastic test tube and other in glass test tube) and I’m from Illinois, should I be hibernating them it’s usally around 40f to 20f degrees in the winter. I also need to know how to hibernate them without a fridge/mini fridge. And yes I own a fridge...

I'm correct?

My Formica Subcericia queen has one worker. That's it. No eggs, just the one worker.

Q1: I put them in the outworld with a sock covering it and a straw poking out so they can forage?

Q2: She won't lay anymore eggs because of the time of year and Formica don't keep eggs over the winter?

Parasitic queen?

How can I tell if a queen is parasitic? Idk if one of mine is becuase the eggs that she lays don’t hatch and I know that she’s mated.
