Re: Welcome to the Camponotus Crew!

Your Camponotus novaeboracensis queen keeps eating her eggs is because you gave her food, the queens will be stressed out if you feed them.

Well really you can look anywhere, it just depends on the time you look. I look after a rainy day on a sidewalk but if there are no sidewalks then ...

Re: Welcome to the Camponotus Crew!

I have recently found a Camponotus nest outside my house and I decided to look for a possible queen.
