How is your colony doing now? I have 5 queens and about 6 workers I'm now trying to keep healthy for Tpro instead of plotting to kill. They haven't touched the BF Blue or trash cat food so far so I'm going to try sugar water and fruit flies tonight. They've laid a bunch of eggs scattered throughout the tubes, not in piles, and no one seems to be taking care of them.  :thinking:


Camponotus vicinus, Crematogaster 1, Crematogaster 2, Formica francoeuri, *, *, Myrmecocystus testaceus, Novomessor cockerelli, Pheidole hyatti, Pogonomyrmex californicus, Pogonomyrmex rugosus, Solenopsis invicta

The queen is still alive, and they have been re-boosted. so i guess they are doing good

The queen had a long pause from laying eggs, but has started again, and she has 4 non-boosted workers now.

Since Argies seem to need a lot of different protein sources, I suggest going to a pesticide and herbicide free field with a net and catch all the field plankton. I think ants can eat some poisonous things because I have seen a foraging party carry home a dead bee and they know which parts are poisonous. My 30+ Lasius colony I have caught had dropped to 20 but when I feed them  a lot of things including jumping spiders, grubs, woodworms, roaches, centipedes, crickets, flies, and other ants, They seemed to have responded well. These foods were frozen, of course.
