i caught a tetramorium immigrans queen, and im so excited! this is my first queen i caught and i have no experience, although i do have a friend who is very good at this stuff.

i put her in a jewellery bead container, which is kind of like a test tube. i ordered a pack of 48 test tubes, so i will wait till then

i think the queen ate most of her eggs :(

no worries as there are many large larva, and only a couple of eggs.

my package of test-tubes finally came! i have decided not to change the test tubes until she has some nanatics.

im also leaving on a trip from today till august 7
