Yes, they are very close!

You can’t see it in these photos, but the inner pupae has a darkened head and gaster, so probably in the next couple of days for that one.

if you actually look at the near the queen at the biggest larvae it looks about the same size of the pupae which means you could have a major comming soon

Yeah, I saw that. I was wondering if it was just a media or major pupae, or if it was close to pupating

UPDATE

The second Worker has finally eclosed! This one is a lot bigger than her nanitic sister, but she has still not quite tanned yet. There is another pupae that is close to eclosing as well. There are still 2 other large larave and about 6 other small larvae. The colony growing very nicely!

Now, photos!
