get a heating cable and warm up on side of the nest, shoot for closer to 30 celsius. offer more protein as well, a cricket or worm they enjoy eating every 1-2 days will help big time! larva need protein for gainz.

Fully claustral queens in their founding stages don't need food. It's best to leave her alone for a good 2-3 weeks and let her be. It might be a hard wait but a rewarding result.


An ants' strength can be rivaled by few animals compared to their relative body size
