Right now I have 2 different species of Myrmica queens, which I will try to ID once they get a good amount of workers. They did not lay their eggs until after I both fed them and put a piece of cardboard over their tubes for darkness.
Here is the smaller queen (7 mm) of the 2 species that I caught. She now has 3 eggs.
