My campanotus queen (which I had for a year now) lost all of her workers before hibernation. I've been kinda lazy and just shoved them on a hidden corner in my room (not even a cold place) and my queen laid eggs? I've read that queens don't lay eggs in hibernation and that the brood doesn't develop. any answers to this phenomenon?
Well, she's probably not hibernating because you are not keeping her cold. She may be sluggish because she is supposed to be hibernating but she is probably confused and started laying eggs assuming that the warmth means Spring is here.
hmm I guess that was the only logical reason. I heard that they have a biological clock in them and they will hibernate anyway.
The biological clock makes them slow down, but without a drop in temperature, they won’t actually enter hibernation.
