Well not much to report mostly larvae large from the pennsylvanicus queens. Was given 2 old fish tanks currently cleaning them up to make new ant nests for both queens when the time comes. My subbarbatus queen now has 2 nantics noticed things in the forging area and when I looked 2 small nantics they are not forging just yet. Placed a small drop of honey and a isopod inside hope they eat it. Not sure what protein they like so still working on it.

My C. pennsylvanicus queen dug the opposite way and flooded her test tube....... I saved most of her brood. The queen herself was only just wet.

i know how hard it is for most queens when wet. they can not move because of the water's tension. as bad is i feel for them i just can't stop laughing at how comical they look when trying to move around. :lol: :D
