Re: Worried about my queen

I caught her on july 22, and she laid about six eggs within a couple of weeks of catching her. The only problem is, they're still eggs. They haven't grown, and she hasn't laid any more.

Make sure you keep her at the right temperature as well. Sadly some of my queens died because of the heat. What temp...

Re: Question about feeding

This question is for when the first workers arrive, which I am aware is a long way away, but hey, it's good to be prepared, right? When the first workers arrive, how and how often do I have to feed them? I'm very new to th...
