What are all of your guy's opinions on brood boosting small colonies? Also can you brood boost a small colony with brood from a different colony of a different species even if you queen is not parasitic?
The colony i'm thinking of brood boosting is a small Crematogaster colony with a queen, four workers and some brood in a test tube setup. I caught her late last year and almost all her workers died (probably 4-5 in total) during hibernation, now with the new year she is getting back on her feet and is doing ok, like mentioned above she now has 4 workers and some brood, but i'm wondering if I should brood boost to take some of her stress away and to help the colony grow and get put in a formicarium. Thoughts?
