Hey Everyone, I obtained a Mymicaria queen December 2014, In Pretoria South Africa. I placed the queen in a 50ml tube and left it for about 3weeks, I checked it again early Jan. I waited for the larvae to develop I only took a pic in Feb 2015. Over that period I was just feeding the queen some frozen meal worms, which she took to quite quite nicely.
It was however quite a rocky road to where I am today. I discovered that the water source dried out, and I had to design a makeshift system until I could build a better founding chamber and outworld. Once the founding chamber/ out world was completed. The Ants naturally went for the new founding chamber with water.
The ants are currently in this founding chamber I have a lot of brood in all stages of development at present. I will attach additional pics to create a timeline of how things are looking at present...
