My AntsCanada Lasius Hybrid Nest has Arrived!

I'm super excited to catch a queen! I'm hoping to find a lasius queen since it's lasius nuptial flight in my area which is why I got the lasius hybrid nest! I just can't wait!

I didn't even know it came with a test tube! All I need now is some cotton balls and I'll be ready to make a test tube setup and find a queen. Thank you, very much appreciated!

Celebrate with me y'all! :lol:

I'll post pictures for identification once I've caught a queen!

I do have a question: What are the little white things in the plastic bag that came with the nest as well? Are those what I use to water the ants?

I've just found out what they were. ^-^ It's just Perlite so it is used for watering the ants :)
