Slave raider means they actively seek out other colony's brood and workers. Accepting brood if you give it to them is not the same.

Hey are we sure these are monogynous? Antwiki reports they are polygynous. I'm hoping to catch some this summer so I need to figure this out and not have a tube covered in formic acid from queens battling it out.
