Re: New ant queen help

The queen has a couple eggs one pupae and one larvae. And the one worker was on her back all day yesterday and I decided to out them in a drawer and let them be. Just checked on them. Both workers seem fine and they finally ate some honey. That was the first time they ate as far as I know.

Re: New ant queen help

I'm keeping them anywhere from 72-75F. I just got them yesterday and noticed it when I got them. The other worker seems fine and I have a few eggs and one larvae and one pupae. I'm hoping everything will be fine if the one does die.
