they have grown...
they have now 7 workers and a massive pile of developing large.

I smashed a log open out in my backyard. I found a huge colony with over 500 workers only to find a dead queen the colony must have had over 2000 workers but since the queen died they must have lost numbers quickly. I found a MASSIVE pile of semi-mature larvae. this species was Camponotus novaeboracensis. I took 10 or so workers and the pile of semi-mature larvae back to my home. there I put them in an AC test tube portal with a AC test tube connected. I put them in. now the fate of this no queen colony lies in your hands.

option A: take the colony with no queen and just larvae, and take them outside, and set them free.

option B: let the workers care for the brood until they turn into pupae and give it to our mutants aka our Camponotus Vicinus colony with Camponotus flordanuis workers and what this journal is about. in this case the mutants would have Camponotus flordanuis
workers with Camponotus Vicinus workers and with Camponotus novaeboracensis workers too, and a Camponotus Vicinus queen.

option C. kill em'

What do you think?

Done!
We will wait for the colony to raise their babies then give the cocoons to our mutants.

Okay so I took the huge larvae yesterday from the camponotus novaeboracensis no queen colony and put it in our mutants. They took the huge larvae and brought it back to the nest. YESSSSSSS!
today they pupated along with the vicinus larvae. So now we have a pile of cocoons of
C. Vicinus and C. novaeboracensis. 4 cocoons of novaeboracensis and around 5 cocoons of vicinus, with more larvae pupating. And eggs. So we have all 3 stages of development. Is this sounding like a Solenopsis Geminata colony with their massive brood pile to anyone?

I’ll take a picture once they hit the 20 worker point since it’ll be better and bigger.
