I found this queen while looking for Camponotus subbarbatus in a twig last month. I gave her about 10 A. rudis workers yesterday. They have been getting along great so far. I hope she lays some eggs soon. (I won't be able to get pics for a while because of their tube)

Thanks! My only colony last year died in hibernation. Hopefully these do better for me this year! They are really common in my area too.

They are getting along great. I also think I see an egg! They love crickets, mealworms, apple slices and banana ZooMed Creatures food jelly cups. (Very long name, I know.)
