I managed to get some Lasius americanus workers to accept a parasitic Lasius queen. I gave them some larvae from a different Lasius americanus colony and they seem to have accepted those too. I fed them a couple fruit flies and they have sugar water and artificial hummingbird nectar as sugar sources. Any advice for ensuring this colony's success or have I done all I can at the moment?

 

Also, if you have any questions about what I've done to get them this far then I'd be happy to answer!
