So I did my usual peek and out of the 100+ Queens there were 12 dead ones. 9 in single test tubes and 3 more(one each) in the multi queen test tubes I'm trying out. So far so good! Hell I even noticed a few of the clutches of eggs contained at least one or more pupa already and it's only been 3 weeks.

I took a shot of the dead ones, notice the leftmost tube, it has eggs in it so I'm guessing queen died this week at some point. Man I'm going to have Solenopsis queens and workers comming out the wazoo! Guess I will Be joining the GAN Project as a Solenopsis Invicta Farmer for Alabama. 90+ Queens!

Update:

Ok so after finding the 4 Queens in the tupperware container had nantics already I thought I would check on those queens in the box. Lost about 6 more but that really didn't matter. Know why? Because over 3/4 of the otehr have between 2 and 20 nantics each!!!!!!!!

I was like holy hell! Guess I had better get my back side in gear and get my GAN account set up! At this point I have 15 queens that I could let go right now beings they have 5 or more nantics each. Went ahead and gave them all their first meal (sugar water), man they took to it like........ Ants to sugar water? LOL Heck even the queens were wandering over and drinking it also.

Oh well time to go post some pics of the other two queens I have that are not Solenopsis.
