I will make the nest right now, as my brain has started to move over to saying "move them before they escape" because i am seeing some suspicious "tunnels" dug in the nest. I think they were there before i only now have noticed them. I also caught a silverfish which was chilling on the roof. Is it safe to feed it to them?
I caught silverfish and fed a few to my Camponotus. He was ceased and brought to a major who decide he wanted to chomp.

Gave them the silverfish and they deleted it( literally, i dont even see the remains of it anywhere). I will change the mesh and do alot of stuff in their outworld. I am also working on their new nest and most of the chambers are done
Ants I have-

Ok so i removed the ow (it tool so long for all the workers to go and then apparently the vinyl tube was too tight so it took more time to safely remove it )
I cleaned everything and added just powder as barrier with a thin line of alcohol+powder incase that doesn't work

Soup udpate
The powder alone actually works very well!
Well, wish i would have known that earlier so i wouldn't have to go to a chemist to buy a bottle of alcohol who thinks that maybe i am a dumb drug addict teen :roll:

Na every time i post an update i just spell it wrongly or add a different word before it so it doesn't bore me while i write the three lines

Also pretty sure i would just die if i put rubbing alcohol in my soup. That or I'll get so high i will probably eat my ants. Baby powder doesn't really affect the taste of soup i would imagine. Anyways the nest time i eat soup i will put some powder just for experiment (not kidding, you will probably get an update from me telling the taste of baby powder in soup)

1 July 2022
It rained so much yesterday and i couldn't catch any queens from the light as all of them were on street lights :( i caught two termite alates and fed then to my colony. Actually the jeff three isn't actually jeff, just slightly bigger cocoon. But dont worry as i have seen a huge larva which is definitely jeff or maybe even a male

Update
MORE POOPS HAPPENING AAAAAA
So there was a huge nuptial flight of termites and i caught alot of them and froze them. I fed two live ones which was very entertaining. Thats not the main poop that happened
I caught two mated p. parva queens!!!
I will be selling both of them after they successfully found their colonies. I don't know long all the GAN process takes and if there will be any customers. If there aren't then i can just merge them to the pot colony i have in the balcony.

Once ants try it over and over in large colonies, it wears off quick. Love the smell of baby powder though.
