Orphan Colonies

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.

Orphan Colonies

So I had 2 Messor Barbarus ants (harvesters) colonies. Unfortunatelly recently queen of one colony died, so I have about 40 orphan ants.
I read this article https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/11/091104122532.htm and I am wondering if there is any option I could join both colonies, but I have no idea how and is it really a good idea. Both colonies are about 35 - 45 ants.
If you have the knowledge to help please do.
