Re: Need help identifying newly caught queens

That would be cool if they were a pheidole sp. :D I wish I had taken better quality photos before putting them away, however soon as a month or two passes by I'll try to take a better pic of them.

Re: Tetramorium Immigrans laid her first batch of workers

Its been 3 weeks now, and I believe both queens now have larvae. Both seem to have equal the amount of eggs, and they have adapted pretty well to their test tubes. :D https://i.gyazo.com/d7fbcec2f1f20763fc85b8a45b2d73da.png Romulus https://i.gyazo.com/8d10dce27d7fd3460e3e83ac77ab7b5a.png Remus Hopef...

Re: Tetramorium Immigrans laid her first batch of workers

Thanks! I believe Romulus has the biggest egg count so far compared to Remus, but only time will tell which one will have the biggest colony. https://i.gyazo.com/ac5fee38279806160664749e50ba9bc8.jpg Remus https://i.gyazo.com/d3764c880023f8eb95b3790f15a4bd23.png Romulus Right now its been about 1 wee...

Tetramorium Immigrans laid her first batch of workers

Took atleast four days but these two queens finally laid their first eggs. First time ant keeping so its pretty exciting. :D Been keeping them in the dark pretty much all the time, and don't mess with them at all. Hopefully, they don't eat their eggs. :lol: https://i.gyazo.com/58c2dc95fa92587a4247b5...
