More eggs and workers are enclosing in. Right now the colony has 35 workers but tons of almost workers. Also the t. destructor was not infact destroyed, as they had a second opening right by the dustbin

Good luck with your queen ant hunting! I always think hunting for queens at night with lights is an interesting way to do things.

Well then it's a good thing that it doesn't seem like she will be dying any time soon.

I gave them honey. When there were alot of ants on it, i tried to take a picture. I took it with the lid on so the picture had mesh on it too. Anyways i thought i would use that as my profile but after resizing, it looked ugly. So when i decided to keep the old one on, i couldn't find it. It took so long for me to find it back :(
Here's the photo i took

Also the t. destructor (which from now on will be referred to as the "trash ants") had a test nuptial flight. There were alot of males and i killed all if them :twisted: i gave one to my ants after freezing it for five minutes but i couldn't find it in the outworld so i thought it flew away
