Hey guys, so I habe been looking at M. Rubra and I noticed they have 2 types of queens...
Does this make it more challenging to found a colony?
Or does it not matter if u catch microrubra over the bigger queens? I only ask because I only know of one wild colony and I know some of them will attract males and mate outside their nest. Will the big queens also do this because I have not noticed another colony around and do not know how far Rubras are willing to fly.
