RIFA-Test On Polygyne.

Caught;One Late Flying RIFA Queen.(A)
Also A Colony Of RIFA.I Collected A Queen,7 Pupae,9 Minors,1 Major,And 3 Super Majors.(B)
1-Put (A) In Formicarium.
2-Put In Queen Of Colony (B) In First-Far From (A).
3-Added Brood And Ants In The Middle Of Queen (A) And (B).
3 Minors Went To (B).All Else Acted Like (A) Was Their True Mother.After 30 Minutes.Queen (A) & (B) Met Up...And Well...Were Fine With Each other.So High Polygyne When Needed.Note;I Could Tell Diffrences Between The Queens;Queen B Was Bloated,While Queen A Had A Small Gaster.
