Re: No eggs for months.

I am still just so surprised at the resilience of such an animal that could live for so long in a test tube.

Re: No eggs for months.

I found another queen in June around the same time I started asking about this queen who is already a year old. I think they are both ordinary backyard garden ants. This years queen has already reproduced in 6 weeks or less. She has 8-9 workers and a new pile of eggs. Last years queen is still alive...

Re: No eggs for months.

I’m going to have to come up with a way to keep her warmer. I think the humidity is ok I see her go back and forth between the wet and the dry cotton. Our average temp isn’t to extreme one way or the other but I can see her needing the extra heat. And I’m going to keep an eye out for something to fe...

Re: No eggs for months.

I have her full sealed up because I don’t have any kind of out world set up but that may be worth a try. I gave her a drop of honey today to see it she is interested. I was also thinking if I leave her for a few days to eat maybe I could put her in the refrigerator for a week or two.

Re: No eggs for months.

Probably definitely infertile. After 7 months she would've layed at least 1 egg (And if she's been stressed out to not laying eggs, she would've died by now). Also how much water do you put in those test tubes? Confused on why it keeps running out. I’m guessing that I can probably get between 7-10 ...

Re: No eggs for months.

Ok so after doing some reading this is what I did. I covered her tube in paper and I’m not going to check on her for awhile. She should have enough water to last. I keep her in a hallway closet because it stays cooler in the winter and I thought she would hibernate and it stays warmer in the summer ...

Roasted Red Peppers

My kids left a plate of food out last night. Ants seam to like breaded chicken cutlet and roasted red peppers. Ants do not like mozzarella cheese :D

Re: No eggs for months.

I think she is just an ordinary garden ant.
