I got this Camponotus modoc queen from Bigb, who found it and a few others on June 20th during a trip to the mountains. He said they were found as alates, but they removed their wings while in their test tubes.

She now has a little pile of various sized larvae.

I found one of these up in Idaho mauled and mutilated by Formica ravida... Really cool species!

The queen got her first worker. :) I notice these are a little smaller than all my other Camponotus.

This queen had a couple workers for a while, but they all slowly died off.

 

She has now been put into hibernation in my new "hibernation cabinet".

I just took this queen out of hibernation. She's not looking too good, so we'll see if she lays any new eggs and recovers.

What would you suggest they eat in terms of protein sources, Drew?
