I know most people heat their colony to help with development. So I tried the same. For months, they would keep their trash in their chamber and never moved their broods closer to it. One day, I decided to remove the heat because I spilled some water and there was condensation. The next day, they have cleaned out their nest. It was perfectly clean. So I made the conclusion it had something to do with the heat. Well, the development has been slow so I decided to get a temp regulator for the heat cable. I set it at 85 but realized where the temp reader was, it was maxing out at 82 so I lowered it to 79F because I don't want the cable on the whole time. I have noticed that they have moved the trash over the heat again. Its only been a few hours since lowering it to 79 so I don't know that is low enough for them to remove the trash. This sp are tropical and supposedly like high humidity and 75-85F. Any thoughts on this?
edit: Its a 15W heat cable
