Well, today I decided to start making journals. After about two hours of taking pictures of my queens for IDs, journals, and other important stuff, I opened the box with my Solenopsis xyloni queen from http://forum.formicu...anting-7092014/, about to write about her massive pile of brood, but still no workers, I look at her test tube, which had a slip of tape covering her, and I see a tiny ant rush out from under it, then back in. I pull the paper off, and there she is with about eight nanitics!!!
Even though I have been into anting for a long time, this was the first time I experienced the excitement of seeing a queen with her first nanitics.
