Leave her alone for a week with no peeking
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

The wounded queen was beheaded, but the other 2 are still fine.

I brood boosted them with larvae from a mature colony. They were accepted, but they look huge compared to the workers. :o

Just be patient. You can use a 15 watt heating cable on the tube to encourage faster growth.

I decided to name them The Empire. (Fitting for Tetramorium immigrans, right?)

They were completely flooded out! I rescued most of the brood, but only 1 queen and 1 worker survived. :cry:

The worker was dead. I put the queen and wild workers in vinegar and mixed them. Either the workers or the vinegar killed the queen.
