Or take part of a colony and some alate brood. I think I will do that so I don't have to take another colony from my yard. :lol:

I'll have to go to Saluda Schoals to get them.

The two male pupa I thought were going to hatch soon never hatched and the workers ate them. There are still a few more males and two worker pupa, so hopefully those hatch. The queen has also laid a nice batch of around 15 eggs, so that's a good sign.

I have no clue how, but every individual but the queen has died. I gave them plenty of water and food. I have no clue how or why they died, but I may be able to start over with the queen. Maybe boost her with some brood from another species.
