Hey again ya'll,
Scenario: Myrmecocystus mexicanus queen with about 20+ workers in a tube sitting in the outworld of formicarium. Workers have moved into the nest with the pupae. Eggs, larvae, and queen remain in the tube with newly minted workers, ~5.
Question: Should I force the move with bright light or just let it happen however long it takes?
Additional info: Any added proteins or sugars are taken into the nest and not the tube.
Thank you all in advance!
