Update: (Feb 20, 2018)

The colony is now in my living room and the workers and queen are all back to normal behavior. I can tell they drank some of the honey I gave them because their gasters are a lot bigger now.

Update: (April 29, 2018)

An update is long overdue

This colony has tons of pupae and other brood. 23 pupae by my count! I think I should move them to a nest soon haha. They have to use a second test tube to store brood because there is so much lol.
