Camponotus Subbertus

Let us know of your ant colonies or queens that have passed away. We will grieve together but will also learn why your ants may not have succeeded.

I don't know where I went wrong there was a lot of mold in her chamber and I transferred her, but she ate her workers and wouldn't make anymore even when I left her alone for a few months except for feeding her and on October 7th she died and the hundreds of thousands to millions of workers that will never grow.

Are you sure she "ate" her workers? The mold could have possibly overtaken them, or they died of stress.
