Will it work?

Hello, today i saw a nest with ants that was destroyed and all the ants were taking the eggs that were on the surface, so i wonder, cant i just take some of that eggs and put them to a queen (in the test tube) from the same species? The ants are L.Niger (the ants i saw and my queen) :?

Re: Parasites?

Sometimes? From 16 queens i remained with just 1. And i wonder, maybe the test tubes are not good or something.
