[STORY] So, about 2 weeks ago I caught a few Lasius Neoniger queens. Yesterday I was doing some voluntaary yard work with a few others. We were about to use a tractor to til the soil. However first we had to move some rocks. I moved one to find a huge Lasius neoniger colony with a HUGE amount of cocoons. So I took them, since they were all going to get smashed anyway for my queen. No surprise i found the colony, as they are everywhere around here. Probably the most common species. So I put all these cocoons in a nest, and introduced the queen. At first she seemed rather skeptical of the whole deal, but I think once she soon realized it was just the cocoons and no workers or queen, she got rather excited and started moving them around and just appeared to be very content.
