T E R R O R in My Ladies' Bower!
So I am a neophyte and learning how to be good. I know that prennies love moisture so I wanted to be sure their apartment was staying hydrated. I will add a drop or two daily.
So, uh, I kinda misjudged my angle and a bit of water got into the nest chamber.
C H A O S.
A scout reported that the entranceway, although near the refuse pile, had space enough for those bebbies who could drown, and there was space enough near the ceiling of the nest chamber for nursemaids to humidify eggs and larva in their mandibles. The Queens agreed and everyone shifted. There are guards and occasional scouts in the tube
I know that they will dry out eventually but just in case they are now attached to a nice clean apartment box by an L-connector. They may ignore it completely in favour of staying where they are and just mopping up, but honestly I'd love to clean it now that the water has spread their uncollected trash a bit.
So, will they move to the drier nest? Or wallow in their marsh?
