Last week I got a Veromessor pergandei from jeffpbalderston. It was a 7 queen colony with no workers but lots and lots of pupae. One queen died 2 days after arrival but she wasn’t looking good when I got them so I kinda saw it coming. Now the colony is at 7 workers with 6 queens in a Nurbs style pencil box formicarium.9ebba261d3bd359bbcf67f436cbc5202.jpg
This colony is pretty hard to photograph because the test tube is very dirty.

This colony has 15 workers, 5 queens, and tons of brood. Another queen died due to natural causes.
