Found a queen and few workers in a twig in early February. They weren't doing as well as I'd hoped, so I gave them some workers from an unrelated colony. They got along great too. Now I've been doing Camponotus colony fusion for a while now, and I have never seen Camponotus accept other workers this readily before. Now today I found a mature colony that had no queen for some reason. I collected several dozen workers and two female alates. I am adding the workers to my colony as I'm writing this, and they are getting along great with the other workers and their new queen so far.
