Hello all!
My phedole, big head ant queen is on her back, been this way for a week, every time I look in she has moved, and her antenea are moving, she has no more eggs or larva they have all grown to ants. Now it did get colder here (FL) but I put the cable heat in with hopes it was just cold, but she is the same? this is my favorite of the ants that I have, so Im really bumming!
