I'll start this off with the claviger, The lasius claviger are doing well and i have a dou queen with around 30 workers and they are in the fridge. The other queen just one founding has 6 workers-2 claviger and 4 umbratus workers and they have 2 cocoons which i am taking out soon for another queen.
Lasius neoniger! despite being rare in virginia one person (aleeguy) are able to catch them very easily, he had 4 queens and i asked him if i could trade for 2 and he agreed so now i have these 2. pics will come later. I plan on putting on in a dirt test tube setup and another in a mini hearth with very big stalactites to see which ends up better in the end though i will only be keeping the one that does best. the other i will sell. they are both in dirt test tubes in the fridge and I'm still waiting for my stuff from THA so it should be here kinda soon.
