You don't have to worry my camponotus pennsylvannicus pulled at her cotton for weeks I had to change it twice I just stopped worrying and left her alone even though I was still worried she would dig her way through the cotton. She calmed down and started laying eggs it was relieving to see because I was considering letting her go so she's fine and also camponotus are notorious for pulling cotton so don't be surprised :lol:
Let us remember that even though ants are wonderful creatures, even more magnificent is their creator 😌

My queen wedged herself in between the cotton and the tube and I was so scared. She pushed herself through the entire thing and escaped into my closet. Thankfully I found her.
These queens can be really stressful haha.

It seems like it. I have two Camp. Pennsylvanicus and one Novaeboracensis and only one of the Penn. is so stressed though. The other two are just laying eggs peacefully it seems.
