Not even a week later and more good news, 2 of her larva have encased themselves in a cocoon. Hopefully the third one will follow suit.

Now to wait another 4-6 weeks!

So, greatest news ever, we have 2 workers! and 3 more cocoons that wernt too much later, so Hopefully in the next week she will be up to 5 workers!!!

Man it was such a journey, but thanks to the advice and patience (And probably the heating box) we got there! The queen became very aggressive and actively hunted whilst waiting for the eggs to become workers which was really interesting to witness.

Now I need to think about what to call her, because she quite literally kept on going and pushing through everything to get to this point! She needs a powerful, immortal name!

Honestly I don't think it would have happened without all the help I received
