New queens from 0-2 nanitics will be shown here. This is the most difficult time for a new queen, and one of the most stressful/exciting for the ant hobbyist.
There are many ways this can go wrong, with most leading to the death of the queen. ie: parasitic fly, fungus, disease, failure to properly mate, and excessive stress.
The best we can do is to offer the queen the best possible environment, a test tube founding chamber, and leaving her alone (undisturbed) between 1-2 months.
Page created! The new queens shown here can take quite a while to grow. Ill add pictures/updates whenever there is something new/exciting!
