Re: Oups, i catch a queen...

I checked again on the 3 queens... Queen 3 definitly looks like something is wrong for her... about 5 to 8 days ago, i forced transfer her because her test tube was looking dirty and she was digging in the cotton like if she was missing humidity. It seems to me that she's digging again to a point th...

Re: my first set-up

I like that the setup have a red glass, it allow to get a look whenever we want and not bothering them... i wonder where you find that one, all i can find is either shitty or expansive (sorry AC, but you are incredibly expansive, i litterally payed 160€+ for a small ant tower and a few test tubes). ...

Re: Oups, i catch a queen...

I managed to get a few test tubes, one relatively large and a dozen quite small that better fit to store them for a very short time. Today, i catch two more queens, probably relative to each other (but not the first one), i met a lot of them. They both get their own test tube, even if they are a bit...
