Where does everybody else keep all their founding queens?!? I keep mine in this cardboard box with duct tape slots for the tubes. Curious for other ideas that allow easy access to them.

I keep mine in a cabinet wrapped in aluminum foil, except for my P. imparis queens. I keep them in a pencil box in my basement since they prefer lower temperatures.

I keep mine in a plastic container with a jacket over it for darkness.
