Nice. I just took my Noveboracensis colony out of hibernation and the queen is really slow. I was wondering when she is going to liven up.
Keeping:
Tetramorium immigrans * Lasius Neoniger * Lasius Claviger * Messor Aciculatus * Myrmica Rubra * Camponotus Novaeboracensis * Camponotus Turkastanus * Pheidole Pallidula

UPDATE
Wow, along time has passed since an update but iv'e learned that c. noveboracensis brood develops a lot faster that pennsylvanicus brood


I’ve heard C. nearcticus brood develop quickly as well.

I love the journal! They seem to be doing well! From what I heard, majors don't start happening for a while. . . how are they doing now?
