It's working. I have eggs!

Should I start feeding her yet?

If so, should I use honey or sugar water?

Are meal worms and tuna ok? I don't have crickets yet.

Dont need to feed her much. I like to get the queens honey once every few weeks, then 1 segment of protein (piece of mealworm for me) when they have some larva. Queens love it, they get fat and happy. :D

Also, my camponotus is the same way. It cant stand the test tube setup. It has relaxed since removing the cottom (have the plastic stoppers in there). Still might move her as it has been 6 months with out eggs. Maybe they just have a problem with test tubes.. O.o. Even tried to put dirt in there, didnt care. On that thought. Im going to move her tonight. haha.
