May have turned up a claustral tapinoma or tetramorium queen, and she had a few eggs it looked like. I collected her and her eggs best I could. Did I just kill a potential colony or is there potential for her to make it? Should I give her a toothpick tipped with honey to replenish some energy?
Yes to which, that she is doomed, has potential, or to give a toothpick with honey for good luck and measure? Haha she is in a test tube setup that is roughly the same volume as the claustral chamber she had dug for herself, with two healthy eggs I managed to save out of roughly 5 that were with her. The two I saved seemed the most healthy. So yes to honey or potential? I didn't get chided so I'm assuming I didnt ruin a potentially healthy colony.
