Hey guys i just caught a camponotus queen recently and im just wondering if its ok to put her test tube in a slightly dusty drawer, like im not sure if the dust will affect the queen or anything. Its like only a little dusty so im wondering if the queen will be alright.

Hello,
don't worry, dust shouldn't be a problem. Also, by closing the test tube with a cotton wool it shouldn't get through. :)
Keeping the following colonies:
  • [2x] Camponotus Barbaricus
  • [2x] Lasius Flavus
