i haven't posted a single thing about how my ants are doing (directly i did post indirectly
so not a single post about how my ants are doing. there doing fine). so should i wait untill i can actually
post about my ants, or should i continue doing this?

exit!

hibernation exit is done! the ants are now out of hibernation.

when i first feeded them i ran into problems. i put their test tube in a self made outworld
(out of a box that you get when you order Chinese food) the problem was
that i put the outworld in the dark(i thinl that was the problem). i look 2 hours
later to check if the ants had eaten their apple(slice) and their was brood in the outworld.
so i use a smal slice of apple to pick them up and put the brood back into the test tube(they stick on apple slice).
i had to move the test tube a lot to put the eggs back in. they have moved to the water cotton ball like they did
in hibernation and didnt move
so i come back the next day and they haven't eaten their apple(now inside the test tube)so i replaced the apple
with a drop of honey. they seemed to like that.

i havent given them a fruit fly yet because im not sure if there flightless.
tomorrow i will give them a fruit fly.

tomorrow the hybrid nest wil arrived(i hope) and outworld will be here on feb 18? maybe

i guess i need to buy more honey i think its cheap so that not a problem. another problem is
that the cat has been annoying. he think the test tube is a toy(because of the moving thing in it
and actually trow the tube on the floor now im forced to keep the ants in a closet. the ants are fine btw.


think this is now my longest post i hope it is i typed this fast so there might be some
spelling and grammar mistakes

there fine. it has been way too long since i last posted so NEW POST!!!
everytime i open there box they start moving around like they had energy drink.
maybe its because it is too warm so i will try lowering the temperature

i did put too much honey in so i had to remove it(3 days after i put it in).

shipping! looks like the hybrid nest is stuck in Memphis
(i dont know why. anyone knows why its stuck in Memphis)?
the outworld is also stuck i dont know where

my cat destroyed the fruit fly culture pot(its always the cats) so now i have fruit flies in my house
worst part is that i need to buy fruit flies so now im out of money
(and the libery is not open so i cant earn more).


again another post that took me 30-36 mins to type. and grammar
