They're at 27 workers now. There are two more pupae left so all I have to do is count how many pupae are left to see how many workers are left lol. There is a giant pupa and a smaller grayish one. I bet the bigger one will be a major.

Fed my colony 6 mealworms last night, gave them a bowl made out of tin foil of sugar water, and two large drops of agave nectar. Should last them till next Monday.

They're still at 27 workers. The last two pupae haven't hatched. They've got a bunch of larvae and eggs though.

Those 2 pupae hatched now. One of them turned into the second biggest major of the colony. So now my colony is at 29 workers. I see another larva in the process of making a cocoon, but I doubt it will be able to hatch before hibernation, which I'll start mid October.
