Hey well you can always ask me about anything aswell if you are having problems. Also it might be worth you looking after mealworms so you can have superworms and mealworms. Remember that is just what I suggest and if you didn't know superworms can feed a colony for a day,p.s that is what Mikey said in a video.

You may loose one of both queens due to fighting. I would leave them in their separate test tubes until the colonies get to large. Get one hybrid nest and maybe make 1 nest. There are videos on how to build nests and out worlds.

They can be inexpensive to make and work well. A simple box with test tube for the nest.

If you put them together they will kill each other, they have developed a different scent so they will see each other as enemies and start to fight.

I think that is your best option aswell. And making a homemade nest really isn't as hard as it looks, I'm not that handy (really clumsy actually) and even I could do it. :)

Basic setup could be test tube in another container. Test tube is the nest and the rest of the container Is the out world.

Be sure to apply deterrent around the edges of the container to help prevent escapesThe Internet will explain what it means

Another test tube with sugar water and a lid to place food.

Additional test tubes can be added for extra nest space.

To get them started you should try feeding them fruit fly that you have killed cockroach might be too big!
