sorry i have not updated in a while but sadly when my grandparents were over my dog got under my bed and ripped up the tissues in the setup. luckily the glass test tube did not break but she got really shaken up. because of this the next day i saw two piles of ant worker parts :cry: . she still has eggs though i don't know if my queen will make another attempt of remaking a colony. i hope she makes it. :(

she is still alive but all the brood she has left is 3 eggs and 4 small larvae. I gave her some honey and some soaked dead mealworm
