Winter 13th August 2018
Well the test tube setup is working ok so far, I fear it might be too late, as this alate nymph does not move...
I added an extra layer of carboard on top of the current one. It was dry when I put it in, but is now damp,
That nymph did die in that position, leaving just one now. Which I fed to one of my Pheidole colonies.
So right now just 1 alate nymph, 3 workers, and 2 soldiers.
There is enough of each to get a colony started, as long as they can stay alive for a few months...
