So today(May 21st) I introduced 3 Lasius works to my Lasius aphidicola queen. I connected the 2 tubes with some tube. They are just walking around a little. These are the first ants I introduced. I have more in the likely case that the first 3 die. They have a little honey.
How can I tell if the queen accepted them? I think that she will probably kill these 3 but for the next ants that I introduce what should I do?
Also what can I easily fead them other than honey. Preferably something solid and easy to break done for 1 ant.
Thx in advance for all responses!
