The queens killed each other. :cry: :( :o :x I will try to find them another queen during nuptial flight in a month or so. (and this time I will only give them one!) :lol:
Are all the queens dead?! This is why I never risk it.
Yes, but my Tetramorium queens with workers are getting along fine. I have never had 2 Lasius queens fight before. They have always been the most peaceful things.

I actually think that they are Lasius americanus (the new name for the North American Lasius alienus), due to the fact that the workers are black.

Batspiderfish said that the Lasius alienus in Europe and Asia was a different species than that in North America, so they came up with a new species, Lasius americanus.
