I now have 12 workers and counting! woo hoo! its getting hard to count them they move so fast!
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

Unfortunately, My queen passed yesterday do to the sun changing and cooking her to death. RIP. I had 13 workers but I have frozen them to keep them from living a sad life without a queen but I am trying to brood boost and give the brood to one of my tetramorium queens.

what do you think that the chances are of my tetramorium queen accepting the brood?

Hmmm good question. I don't know what to tell you on that one. I don't have much knowledge on brood-boosting across species like that. Let me know how it goes.

No problem. BTW, I have your Bible scripture (Proverbs) framed on my wall here by my ant colonies ;)
cool! I find it cool that God talks about even the little tiny things. I've also thought about how alot of things in science are false but we dont know it yet. But from that verse, we know that one thing in science we have right. ants don't have anyone individual in the colony telling them what to do!
I agree. Isn't His creation amazing?
