Omni Vetical Question

I have a queen with eggs in a 16x150 test tube. What is the best way/equipment to transition her to the omni vertical small nest?

Don't right now. It'll be best to wait until she has workers.

Oh, I don't want to move her now. I was just wondering if there is some piece of equipment an adapter ect that I will need to attach my tube to the omni vertical? I haven't even ordered my omni yet and thought if there was I could by them together.

Just place the test tube in the arena part of the nest. That way you can easily feed the colony when it gets first workers and they can move when they see fit. They'll probably live in test tube until they are 50-250 workers before they move into the nest though.

Sounds good. I wasn't sure the tube would fit inside that area. Thanks for the information.

I'm not sure if it does either but I think it should fit (especially diagonally).
