Ever since I got my one, lone Forelius pruinosus queen from http://forum.formicu...anting-7092014/, she has slowly been building up the amount of brood she has. It is crazy, that without eating once since they flew from their parent colony, that they can make a pile of larvae and pupae about three times larger than their mass. It does show though, she has shrunk raising all these, and it finally paid off for her yesterday, when her first worker eclosed!
Followed by that, a second one came today and I decided to feed them. I put a drop of sugar water into the bottom of the test tube, and the second the first worker found it, drank up, and immediately rushed back (The test tube is actually a pretty large place for them) to the queen, and gave her some. After that, all three rushed down to the other side of the test tube as if they were crazed, and filled up. I did not really care much for this species at fist but after reading about them, I figure it will be fun to keep. My only problem is their size though. They are tiny. Probably smaller than Solenopsis molesta.
