I have a odontomachus monticola queen, she is in a testube filled with sand and she has a small chamber with a large batch of eggs and a pupae, one larvae was dumped outside and then eaten.
She laid her first batch around Februari 15, ate all eggs exept two and one turned into a pupae about a month ago, still no ant has eclosed how long is the development stages??? :|

Correct me if i am wrong but is she not a semi claustral species? Did you offer her any food?
