Re: colony moving

Kinda second guessing what species I have.they were coming from a hole the ground,so they prefer to live underground.It will hard to get a pic of her in the foricarium.Hate to disturb her.Her color is a dark red all over,and the workers looked all the same size when they were moving.

Re: colony moving

Maybe they need more time to settle in.But the queen is laying eggs like crazy,I would guess there is around a hundred if not more.

Re: colony moving

When the worker grabbed the queen she would ball up so the worker could carry her.

Re: colony moving

Well I checked them this morning and still haven't found the formacarium yet.But defiantly it is a queen,she laid six eggs lastnight.Any tricks to get them in the formacarium.They are staying behind it but haven't found the entrance yet.
