In the midle of July I caught around 20 Tetramorium caespitum queens. I put around 10ish, of them all together. Today they got their first Nanitics so I figured it was time to document the upcoming results.

The bad pictures can be blamed on the tube. I can barely see through it with a naked aye. However better quality will come when I put the girls in their new nest.

Lots of eggs, and larva in these photos. So far so well.
