So I bought a new carpenter ant colony and they came in a bottle so I call them the bottle colony and I named the queen Queen Antlizabith ( Get it ) they had mabye 30 to 50 workers. Also I belive they are Camponotous sayi. This is going to be like a diary log and feel free to comment

this morning I saw a worker drinking some honey and saw some other workers tending brood. I belive that queen antlizabith had laid more eggs since I got them 2 days ago. There is tons of pupa so more workers expected soon
