I found this queen arund a month and a half ago(I don't have the exact dates for the begging of this journal) , during a huge nuptial flight, it's it's a Solenopsis Saevissima queen.
I decided o boost this colony since there was a colony of them in my yard. After some time I had the first worker:
After some some days I had 3 workers, but 2 died, and only the first one survived. I left them alone for some more time and then when I checked again I had only one worker(the same one probably) and some dead bodies, I concluded that this worker was probably killing the other workers as soon as they are born.
Topic of the discussion:
I went outside trying to find another Solenopsis Saevissima queen and I ended up digging up one, I removed the murderer worker from the test tube and placed the new queen, a short video showing them in the first minute
