Lasius alienus - This colony is doing well. Their larvae are growing like crazy and the largest are just starting to pupate. The queen just laid a brand new batch of eggs as well. Although they are a little ways away from needing a formicarium; when they do I'll most likely move them into a homemade firebrick nest.
Lasius flavus? I'm excited about these guys. Found them last August. Over a dozen of these queens. These seemed to do well together. Now, they have a whole bunch of eggs. Hopefully, they will grow exponentially. This might easily become my largest colony since I had to rehouse all my adult colonies when I moved.
Other Lasius neoniger? queens: I have a couple single queens and a double queen test tube. Double queen has a lot of brood.
Camponotus pennsylvanicus - Unfortunately one queen, and a worker from her colony died. So, I gave the remaining worker and larvae to the other colony. This colony now has three workers. The queen just laid six eggs. I think I startled them into eating their smaller larvae one time, so I'll try to be more careful with these guys. Hopefully, I can get some more of these guys. We have plenty of firewood waiting to get burnt to a crisp that I know has some carpenter ant colonies as well as some Aephenogaster colonies I will collect come spring time.
Solenopsis molesta - This 4 queen colony has quite a bit of brood. Never had a colony of these guys so, hopefully, they will do good.
Brachymyrmex - found this queen last fall. She has a couple eggs. She is super tiny, so we'll see how well she does.
