Re: Prenolepis Imparis Journal

After the ants settle down into a certain temperature they dont move and just sit there. Also today I saw thequeen curling and I am worried she might be dying but it could also mean she is cleaning herself or laying eggs but it is to early for her to lay eggs.

Re: Prenolepis Imparis Journal

Yeah, right now I have them in the garage and its about 50-60 degrees in there and they seem to like it. The queen has been moving more and the workers are more active. Hope they move soon.

Re: Prenolepis Imparis Journal

Another thing, any namesuggestions would be welcome since right now I have them named overfed fighters which I found funny but the only problem is they aren't really fighters. In fact they are pretty lazy, just chilling in their tube only moving when I check on them and to go get water. :lol:
