My Ectomomyrmex javanus's eggs started turning into this weird shade of pink. I posted this pic on antkeeping reddit and the responses were that they might be infected with parasites or a virus. of course, there are more professionals here than there. Are these found in other ants as well or is it completely new to the antkeeping world?


Thanks in advance.
