They have access to the other two boxes? They all just wanna hang out in the one? That's pretty interesting


The one they are in is the one that is hydrated.

Nice setup Drew. I still use test tubes, using the extra large 25mm x 200mm tubes. Image is next to a 16mm x 150mm.


Second year colony, four queens. Some tubes I leave without a plug for lower humidity. Even though they are harvesters, I always give them sweets. The love it. Same with Novomessors and Andreis.

Well I found the queen of the large colony dead today, so there goes that. All I have left now is one new colony with one worker and some brood.

Oh no! They lasted over 5 years though! I’m looking for some now. Is it too late? I haven’t had any luck finding queens but there are 3 large colonies in the area around my house so I remain hopeful.
