I have 2 Pheidole colonies one a lot larger than the other
One with 9 queens and the larger with 4
The smaller one has 100 workers the other 500-700
Can I fuse them together to form a 13 queen colony

The risks are great, and the rewards are incredibly meager.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.
