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.

Last year I killed one queen from stress another from suffocation and 2 more from starvation and/or a mold outbreak (it was too cold and the brood didn't develop). This year I lost one from a mold outbreak but have 4 more still alive and doing well. RIP 5/9
Trying to start lasius niger colony. Hoping to keep myrmica rubra and lasius flavus in the future and considering mealworms. Current keeper of 3 evil monsters aka rabbits
