Update #19: The Heatwave (August 12 2022)

All colonies are growing steadily

There's a heatwave going on right now in the Netherlands, hopefully these desert-steppe ants pay no mind to these temperatures!


Colony A:
[ Population: ~5.000+ ]

Made a sixth Ytong nest for the colony


They moved in fast


I was wondering why some nests looked empty on certain days and suspected there were a lot of workers hidden in the outworld...

Yup, they've been using that wooden log as a little outworld-hideout! There were hundreds of ants in the crevasses as well





















Colony D:

[ Population: ~150 ]


Colony D has lots of brood of their own now

No large pupae yet, but those should appear soon. Hoping to see red-headed majors!
