Crematogaster sp. help

Post: # 19550Post LukeTheGreat

1.5-2 months ago I checked on my queen, then coming out of hibernation, and she had 5-7 eggs, I just checked again today 10-15 eggs, but no egg growth from before. She is tending to her eggs normally, 1/3 water left, garbage pile, seems healthy.
Any help is appreciated.

You're doing everything properly. Crematogaster really appreciate heat though, with brood developing much faster with it.

I put my Crematogaster queen in the closet with my water heater and left her alone for 4 weeks then when her 1st workers came I gave her honey, then I put her test tube in an outworld and fed her that way. Good luck

Looks good, but might need a new test tube within a few weeks.
