Introducing foreign black crazy ant queens

Hi there
I have a black crazy ant colony of around 20 workers and would like to add 3 queens to the colony. Any suggestions on how to add them successfully? Thanks!

Re: Is my queen bound to die??

You should move her into a test tube. Queens ants can be stressed when their nest areas is too big for the colony. She may not be laying eggs when stressed. Hope this helps!

Re: NEED HELP IDENTIFYING POSSIBLE NEW ANT SPECIES! *not clickbait*

The first one looks like a crematogastor species. The second one looks like a lasius species. Im not 100% sure but they look like it...

Re: Carebara diversa in SG

My friend just caught a carebara diversa drone yesterday. It rained heavily yesterday so Im not sure if that's what trigered them out. Will continue to keep a lookout for the queens. Thanks for the info!

Re: Carebara diversa in SG

Around what time of the year do they have nuptial flights? Or they just fly a few at a time?

Re: Alates?

I notice that they have started eating a lot more and dug bigger tunnels and chambers. Could it be that they are preparing to produce alates soon?
