I also ran the heating cable over the Pheidole and C.humiliot test tube as they are close by
Over the middle of both test tubes
Phediole sp. red head/black body 9mm
The workers noticed the heating cable warmth with a few mins and moved all the pupa it seems up to the test tube ceiling sticking it up there.
While 8 of the 9 nanitics hung around them.
Then the big pupa pile collapsed to the floor!
And the workers slowly brought them back up again
The queen and one worker stayed at the water cotton though. Along with most of the larvae.
Seems like no one to feed the larvae now, apart from the queen and one worker, which they started to do later on....
So the heating cable has downsides in this case
Took the C.humilior longer to respond, but after a worker noticed, the queen moved up to the heating cable.
Then the two workers with the eggs.
Now I can see they are back to two eggs, they must have eaten the third one
WTH, I just gave them a nice chunk of wood roach yesterday!
