This queen was caught on May 27, 2018.


She landed on a pot of water on my deck in backyard. She had what appeared to be small parasites on her leg which were removed after cooling her down in a fridge for an hour. Sadly, I have no video of this.


You can see the parasites in the first video though.



Video on June 3



And then June 25



July 3



July 13



July 20 is when she got her first nanitics.



August 27



September 14



October 16: This is just before I decided to place the colony in my fridge. They are due out on Feb 1st.



Hibernation status check on on Dec 11. Few workers seem to have died by overall colony appears to be doing fine.

The color of those eggs are so cool. You can always tell when they hatch and become larvae, with that bit of clear color in them!
