Are they attached to an out-world set up?

How often do you feed them? What do you feed them? How moldy is their test tube? You gotta explain their current state and how you take care of them if we are to help.

That test tube is not even that bad. As long as they have water and the cotton is not like completely black and spreading onto the brood and queen its fine. I suggest connecting them to a small out-world to forage.

So what's happening to the workers? They're being fed enough of protein and sugars...
