So excited!
I got home today and I hadn't checked on the ants for a few weeks and what do you know!
I now have three queens actively producing eggs!
This is is my first time keeping ants and it's just super cool!

Congrats! ;)

I can say from personal experience, leave them alone. I've lost multiple queens from not.

+1 if you leave them alone so they don't get stressed they will be more likely to continue to produce eggs

Thanks guys! I definitely will. Any recommendations for what intervals I should check on them?
