Just received these in the mail a couple minutes ago and I’m now going to make my journal on how they go! If you have something to say about these being in Virginia, then go somewhere else.
Got here with a couple larvae, pupae, and no eggs. Shipping caused her to eat her eggs and larvae. She has two workers both of which are just now waking up as well as the queen from being in my mailbox. I stuck her on a heating pad for right now and I have her some seeds. They don’t eat seeds all the time or barely any but it’s what I had this minute. She is currently also a darker color than most novomessor cockerelli and is basically very dark red. Here’s a picture from before they got here and I’ll get pictures soon. I made a firebrick nest with grout and sand as well as a good water source, the nest is around 8x9x4.5 and resembles a tall firebrick fortress from tarheelants. 941C645D-6B1F-4E59-9383-D8C87123EBAD.jpeg 132.09KB 0 downloads
