Re: Queens problem?

Update- I fed my colony a meal worm and some honey around a week ago. I didnt feed them today because i saw a bunch of ants with full gasters. Some of the brood seem to have grown but no cocoons yet. Workers seem fine and the "alone" queen switched spots... also the queens are in the same conditions.

Re: Queens problem?

Also it seems like the water testubes that i set up in their nest isnt going down. I dont know where theyre getting their water from. During the winter (it still is) i didnt have my heating pad on so there was nearly no humidity, i would never see an ant crawl into the water test tube so one of them...

Queens problem?

I was able to get a componatus clarithorax colony with 2 queens :D . When i got them the 2 queens were perfectly fine, they got along and were always together. When i moved them to a bigger nest (because they were in need) the two queens seemed to stay away from each other. I would occasionally see ...
