Did a video of the workers .... the photos I took with my Phone didn't work .... I hope the video isn't too blurry.

Workers seem to be about 4mm and bright yellow gasters.

These photos don't appear clear enough to make an ID, sorry.

Also, it's unethical to collect mature, native colonies. Avoid doing this at all costs. :)

This was not a good way to capture these girls my friend...and as above suggests, it's not a good idea to capture mature colonies...especially this way.

Did I say anywhere I was keeping them? ...... I destroyed their home and just wanted them IDed, some people come here for IDs just to get an ID not to keep or collect anything ..... dont worry they will die ....... but thanks for your concern.
