Yeh I think i'll put her test tube into the test tube portal and leave a little sand in there, see how that works out.
Try to make sure the sand is moist so it doesn't spill everywhere though.

Queen ID

Hello, sorry if this is in the wrong section, I couldn't find the ID. Yesterday, I caught 4 queens. I don't wanna pic them right now, but I will in a few days once they've settled in. 1 went in a natural set up and the other 3 in test tubes. For a long time I couldn't figure out what they are. :?: B...

Re: Name Voting

Bro, I think the bloody empire perfectly fits them. Just their personality and smell and everything, it goes perfectly :mrgreen: They also have been seen making some humungous nests.

Re: What should I do with my ants right now?

Oh I wasn't saying that like they were curled up or something. They were legitimately sitting down and walking around and just doing their normal thing, even though they were slowing down and not foraging and brood was slowing around when I put them in. I'll take your stuff in mind next winter, but...

Re: What should I do with my ants right now?

Also, I try to make sure that my colonies can forage freely as soon as a several workers have eclosed. It's ok to seal them in a tube for hibernation, but they should not be given insects. Sugar may be offered, but make sure it is on a tray and soaked into cotton or coffee filter to prevent workers...

Re: What should I do with my ants right now?

Not knowing isn't a crime, but there are a lot of resources here explaining hibernation. You at least have been providing food on a tray, which is the only practical way of feeding ants inside the tube. So, a misconception I see often is that an ant is only hibernating when it curls up like a littl...
