Hello, i recently received a queen of Pheidole pallidula that were packaged horrendously. when they had arrived to me there was no water inside the test tube and along with a severely weakened queen all the eggs had died.
is there anything i can do that will help her survive?
Thank you

Make a fresh test tube setup for her and she will lay more eggs.

I had done this as soon as i saw she was without water (when she arrived to me) Sadly she was too weak as i fear and passed away over night, Thank you for your suggestion anyway
