Hey ac family, I just found. My old heating mat and temperature gauge. Ive set my test tubed queens just on the edge of the mat, so should I put a blanket over them or what. Thx
founding queens:
x2 componotus consobrinus
x1 iridimrmex bicknelli
x5+ Linepithema humile
x1 unknown queen (either phiodole or camponotus)

I don't see a reason to put a blanket over them. Just make sure they are in a dark place and the mat isn't too hot.
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

Keeping Tetramorium immigrans, Lasius Neoniger
