Re: Journaling my first queens (camponotus pennsylvanicus)

Sad update. Queen 1 and her workers mysteriously died. One night they were all fine, and the next morning they were all expired. I have no idea why this happened. No obvious signs of anything wrong. The only thing I can think of is maybe something was wrong with the cricket I had fed them recently. ...

Re: Hikari's C. Pennsylvanicus journal

She seems to be enjoying the THA atom. Get ready, because things really start to pick up steam once she has workers helping. I think queen 1 from my journal is up to 6 workers already and well on the way to 4 or 5 more with a pile of brood! I'll do an update later today so you can check her out and ...

Atta texana journal

Well guys, it's time I introduce a new lady. My atta texana queen, in all her glory. It's obvious my buddy did not give her the care and consideration I gave the two I caught for my son's friend. However, she seems rather content in her beyond small container. http://i347.photobucket.com/albums/p441...

Re: Looky what I caught in south texas!!

Just a little update on these ladies. They were both delivered to their new homes. I will be keeping in touch to find out how they are doing soon. Anyone know how long it might be before workers emerge? I was asked, but had no clue.

Re: Journaling my first queens (camponotus pennsylvanicus)

Fed the girls a cricket last night. The workers are no longer skidding lol. It was quite brutal. Wish I would have taken video... but I was far to enthralled in the destruction. http://i347.photobucket.com/albums/p441/AntzNaTube/20170608_222143_zps8nawpwhg.jpg I know the picture sucks, but there was...

Re: Journaling my first queens (camponotus pennsylvanicus)

I remember it came off of something else but I can't remember for the life of me what it came off of. I do however remember it was much harder to get it to work the way I wanted than I had previously expected. But, such is the nature of workshop tinkering. :lol:

Re: Journaling my first queens (camponotus pennsylvanicus)

Oh no! I didn't think that at all. :o I don't really remember what thermostat I used honestly. That project took place several years ago and the ol' memory bank isn't quite what it use to be. :roll:
