So I had acquired 3 ca02 queens the other day and today I discovered that one had looked like she was on her last leg. Then suddenly after taking her off the incubator and then reducing the heat then putting her back on she seems to be coming back to life. Has anyone ever had this happen before.

I decided to just put her on my shelf to cool off so I’m hoping that it works out.

You don't really need to heat them much, an ambient 80 degrees F is plenty for them.
