Well another ergatognya died, and all the molestas that were on the wet part of the cotton, being calm, died, well, more accurately downed from digging into the cotton, or diving into condensation. My guess is that there are no fertile molestas now.
The remaining ergatogynas, however, are being very calm. I really hope these get workers!
