Re: Camponotus help + update Messors + dreams

UPD:
N1 has more than 10 workers, named her Electa. Put some seeds in, they seem to enjoy sesame and chia seeds.
N2 is still in very poor condition. She lays eggs, but no larvae grow.
N3 has 2 workers. going well.
C1 has got some larvae, pretty big.

Messor queen n. 1 now has got a worker! It is very small and weak. The queen picked the worker up in panic. So I was scared too and quickly put the test tube back in the dark wardrobe.

Re: Camponotus help + update Messors + dreams

:!: It seems to me that Camponotus queen has just laid eggs! So she must have been comfortable in the box. Also I moved n. 1 messor queen into a new test tube. I was bothered because of water level.
