I think it's just a myth. I and my friend have been keeping duel Tetramorium queen colonies for months now and so signs of aggression have been shown. I think it just depends on the queen..
They probably are Pheidole then. My queens probably were, too.

So I tried it with another tetramorium queen and overnight I saw the new one on the ground dead. It didn’t work!
Yeah, Tetramorium queens will fight. My queens were Pheidole.

They are sparse but can be found. ;)
An ants' strength can be rivaled by few animals compared to relative body size.

Well, we will see how that works out for ya.
I think the one being attacked was not mated, so she was just a waste of energy. All she did was help take care of brood during the founding stage. Then she wasn't needed, and........
