Re: Test tube problem.

So my mom brought me the queen today and once we got her into my building she went nuts and seemed to clean her self for about 3 min. We but a bit of water on the cotton but it still looks very dry. The container has small holes in the lid for air is this a good idea?

Re: Canada, Ontario please help me.

Thanks for confirming that for me. Once I get her I'll take more photos. I'll have to drive to get her as I live a distance from my mom. She knows about my love of ants and even asked questions about them then last night she finds her on the screen door into her work.

Test tube problem.

So I found some tubes at the local craft store. The problem I'm having is the opening is smaller the the rest of the tube. So the cotton is not having a tight fit so water gets by. And the last thing I want is to find my future queen to die over a little water. So does anyone have any ideas to help ...
