Starting a journal on my Camponotus pennsylvanicus queen. The name Frozen icials came from me finding the queen when it was 40 degrees out (close to freezing) and icials because icicles but I didn’t feel like making it that.

Nice French! I use Spanish, yet French is so sophisticated. That's why I like it and don't use it. Confused yet?

Queen Reine gelée is dead. I don’t know what happened but I don’t care. I saved her eggs and gave it to another colony of her species. Dang. I guess that’s the end of the Frozen icials

Lol I’m a moron! I was talking about a queen I recently caught and I thought it was her! Those “eggs” was mold. I just moved her and she layed her first egg!
