Caught another C. Herculeanus! This one doesn't have wings and is a lot more passive, I start to think the first one could be not fertile.
But ill keep her for now.

-1 F. Rufa queen

After a month my L. Niger:s first worker hatched.
It is very small and I think more will soon come.
(She has a lot of pupae!)
Also made a setup out of aac/aircrete, tubing and a plastic box. Ill wait until they have 10 workers or more.

Cathed a F. Fusca queen yesterday and I put it in test-tube-setup. Also the C. Herculeanus queen
with wings died.

Is L. Niger polygynous*, because I have 2 queens of the same sp. And would like to combine them.

*(Don't know how to write that).

Sadly L.Niger is not polygynous species.

Well thats unfortunate. Well the other queen is a lot ahead having 3 workers, like 6 pupae and lots of brood and larva. ;)
The other one has 2 workers and maybe 1 or 2 pupae and okay amount of brood.
