I had a queen die on me recently and she left behind a small pile of eggs. I collected them and gave them to a known egg lover.

going like hotcakes

Pretty sure she's not reading them a bedtime story.

I have many queens Leo, and as far as luck goes this girl has finally laid a batch of eggs after almost three months!

Amblyapone sp.
Amblyapone sp.

Unfortunatley her wings appear to have developed some mould on them.

Amblyapone sp.

Might try snipping them off as close as possible. If she ever comes out that is. :D
