I decided to keep a journal of my new campo queen. Super excited! I gave her a tiny drop of honey to boost her a little. Really hope she starts a colony!

I’m not sure. The wait is probably like the only bad part of keeping these girls, but she seemed happy yesterday, when I finally checked on her. She had a couple eggs, although I’m not sure. I’ll post pics once my clip on macro lenses arrive!

I finally checked up on her today. She seems to be happy, but she only laid 1 egg. There may have been another, but I didn’t look closely. Is this normal?
