Re: Welcome to the Camponotus Crew!

This might be one of the saddest updates here, when i came to check on my colony of Pheidolegeton diversus colony a few days back, i saw the queen had died :cry: . The workers also seem to be dismantling the queen into pieces to feed the brood, officially i have lost this colony... :cry: :(
