sorry guys for being in active! i'll try to do better, thanks for staying active in this journal though!
so a long and needed UPDATE!

So Since march a lot has happened.
Mostly it's just growth but the Red Dragons Had there first Major! by now they have another but still it's been fun so see how huge they are (only second to the queen). But by early July the Red dragons stopped have a ton of brood. I really don't know what's wrong but it could be there set up. They have lost several workers but mostly just from old age, (I hope). now all they have is 3 minors and 2 majors. (plus the queen). They also have one or two larvae.

Well they might have grown even bigger by the time you get back and they will have enjoyed the quiet time! ;)

No no it wasn’t that I was asking because it’s an impressive pile of brood. I wasn’t sure if they had pulled the cotton and stuck a few eggs on it. Great shots!! Thank you for sharing.
