Yeah he fed them mealworms and moths in previous posts.
I haven't fed them moths since June. I fed them two mealworms this morning.

So cool! I think I see three different castes, is that how many there are? The small dark ones are the nanitics, the slightly larger ones with a more thinner gold band are the workers, and the bigger ones with a wider gold band are the majors?

My colony is now at 25 workers. I think I'll move them into a hybrid nest when they reach maybe over 50 workers. Maybe I'll wait even later than that.
