I rap my test tubes in tape, yet it seemed that unwrapping the tape stressed her, therefore she ate 6 eggs, and only has 5. :cry: In response, I wrapped containers with tape and put the test tubes inside without tape in instead.

She lost her wings.
So she is no longer a fashion queen. XD
Doing some proper research is the best way to start an antcolony. After the research you can still go and fetsh a colony from one of your local GAN-Farmers.

My current colonies:
1 Lasius Niger Colony

I caught another C. pennsylvanicus queen a few days ago, and she is in a test tube setup. I hope she's mated too!
