I found my first queen a week or so ago, i got her identified. Now i didnt know how to get pupae after knocking down a few bricks i found some after separating the pupae i put them in the tube. Eagerly awaiting ninantics. Will give updates. Feel free to suggest names for the queen and a name for the colony.
Currently founding:
Parasitic laisus

Waiting for Trachymyrmex septentrionalis, Prenolepis imparis, and Lasius aphidicola.

I'm guessing it's a Laisus Umbratus queen???
Hibernating Lasius Niger, Lasius Flavus, and Myrmica Rubra. Zzz..

Parasitic Lasius queens are incapable of caring for brood, including unwrapping pupae, meaning they will never hatch. You have to put adult workers in with her.
"God made every kind of wild beasts and every kind of livestock and every kind of creeping things;" (including ants) "and God saw that it was good." Genesis 1:25
