Hello everyone, I decided to make a journal on my Camponotus castaneus Queen and several of my queens I caught here in South Carolina. Currently i have them all in a test tube setup out in my shed in the dark, I got Solenopsis invicta during a nuptial flight a couple weeks back from a colony that recently passed away due to pest control. Being new to anting i have been very careful not to disturb them and only check on them once a week. So far the Solenopsis invicta are doing great! All three queens have laid a ton of eggs, here is a picture. (Hopefully the picture is not too large and not too bad quality)
And my beautiful Camponotus castaneus queen, so pretty ^_^
I have high hopes for these girls, fingers crossed!
(Any suggestions are welcome, I'm new to this :3)
I just checked one of my Solenopsis invicta queens and i have nanitics! I will post a picture as soon as she gets a couple more. ^_^
Hurray! Now it is time to give them a little honey.
Queen #3 the second Solenopsis queen now have three nanitics! hurray!
SO HAPPY! ^_^
(More photos soon!)
