This is split from my old journal

 

I have 4 camponotus vicinus queens, all of which have at least 1 pupa. I got these from Vern a few weeks back. I put 1 of them into a mini founding chamber that I made, the other three are in test tubes, they seem to be doing well.

I got a few more of these from a trade with cocdeshijie, and he actually gave me a polygenous set!

Besides this set, there were three other single queen colonies, one of them even has 2 workers! I'm most likely going to sell the single queen colonies in a few weeks.

 

EDIT: The two worker colony just had another worker eclose

Unfortunately one of my 2 all black vicinus died last night. Prior to this, she was barfing up the perky pet she ate, and she had a dead larva. Her two cocoons are soaked in perky pet, but I will give them to the other all black vicinus in hopes that they will survive.

Ah, that’s too bad. It’s always sad when a queen dies.

On the side note, though, I also have a polygynous pair of vicinus queens.

I got 2 more all-black variety of these girls from a trade with Vern, they both came with large piles of brood and I expect workers should be coming in the next few weeks. I will be selling both the orange variety and the black variety later on when they get workers. One of the single queens I got from cocdeshijie just got her first workers, and the double queen should have their first worker soon.

The polygenous set had their first worker eclose sometime last night!

Not much of an update, but I got a shot of an eclosing worker which I thought was pretty cool.
