Hey guys, I'm a bit in a struggle here... Does Camponotus queens needs to have some earth or something to dig and burrow inside the test tube?

Yeah, not necessary. I prefer to have my queens just in a clean tube with no substrate. There is less of a chance to introduce bacteria, you can see the colony better, and it looks nice to me.

Thanks, guys!! I'm a bit worried, I never had this species before.. Does it take too long for them to lay eggs after nuptial flights?
