Re: 3 Queens won't lay eggs.

Re: How large can a Lasius colony get?

actually i just looked for some answers and found that most lasius Niger colonies are 7,000 workers but in captivity they can get up to 40,000. of course lasius Niger is not in america so other species could be different. even then i can't find info on lasius neoniger so maybe you could find out if ...
