I've got 2 nurbs certified queens with like 5-7 eggs each, going to include them in a huge journal I'm making soon.
Currently keeping:
Loads of founding queens of camponotus spp., Veromessor pergandei, D. Bicolor, and a couple other species.

Proud owner of a 30 worker C. Fragilis colony, a 90 worker F. Francoeuri colony, 2 Siberian huskies, 3 cats, 2 fire belly toads, 1 western toad, 1 western fence lizard, 1 A. Seemanni tarantula, and a variety of feeders and a couple random inverts.

These colonies are all doing great. Quite a few of them just got their first workers a few days ago. The nanitics are about the same size as the large black and red C. vicinus nanitics.

These are all doing very well. I think I have only had one queen die so far. By now they almost all have workers, and some close to ten or so.

Just got my 1st CA02 worker. My other two queens should have workers soon too. I kept mine in a drawer, dark, and without heat. And wow, my workers are late by almost a month. My room temp stays in the mid to low 70s. I’m guessing Drew’s ant room is much warmer haha.
