How do you keep your queens warm.

Personally I put them in boiling water, or i cover them in hot sauce so they feel like they are warm but I don't need to invest in a heating cable. I've seen other people use molten aluminum. How do you guys do it?






For the slow people in the audience yes this is a joke.

Knit them sweaters, scarves, and three sets of gloves obviously.

Your mouth is very warm, dark, and humid! I would reccomend keeping queens in your mouth for a few days. Workers too, but don't swallow! Just pop em in from their tubes like tic tacs.

I used to use these techniques, but then I discovered Tobasco sauce. Ever since this, I have just been letting them swim around, enjoying the extremely hot temperatures inside.

Another great place to keep your queens warm is in the microwave. They run on hydraulics, so they will be warmed from the inside.

You guys are being ridiculous . We all know the best way is to cut open a Tauntaun, and stuff them in it. Worked for Luke anyway.

What I do is I put them in the oven. You can also sterilize your dirt in there as well! 2 birds with one stone!
