The Formica pallidepulva queen's first worker finally eclosed yesterday! It took a lot longer as a pupae then I thought it would. There are about 7 more pupae that are close behind as well.
The Camponotus castaneus queen still has no workers, just 6 or seven pupae. These also are taking their time as pupae. The Camponotus discolor colony is down to 4 workers because 3 have died. I never seem to have much luck with Camponotus of any species. I'm just hoping the colony can hold out till hibernation.
The Valentines have not moved any brood into their new dirt nest yet, but this is probably because it isn't heated like their AntsCanada nest. I'm trying to plan out how to best hibernate them, and I think having them solely living in the dirt nest would be the easiest way.
