3 Year old colony, about 125+ strong. They seem to nest in the upper half of the Hyrbid Nest, closer to the heating cable. They seem to have made a few chambers garbage chambers, but thankfully no mold at all yet. They have been in this setup for about 1.5 years.

It wont let me put images for whatever reason, even if I shrink them they are still to big for this forum.

I have tried to clean the lower chambers, it is not easy at all to do. This colony is easily disturbed when you touch the glass, and the queen has been in full egg laying mode. So I don't want to disturb her.

Nice colony. I though Formica grew faster than that. I currently have a founding Formica queen she laid a few eggs.

Huh. . . I got it to work!

I went to the imgur page and then right clicked on your image and clicked "open link in new tab" and then took the link from THAT browser. That is what is going to be the address of the actual image, rather than the place on imgur where it is located
