Hi! I hope you are well.
One of my Honeypot Queens and a couple of ants died. I think it was due to moving related stress. I tried my best, however... It seems they could not make it.
Anyway, I put the rest the colony on a temporal nest: without a Queen, that's a nest that I would like to clean and re-use with other colonies.
Can anyone give me some advice about cleaning a concrete nests, please? The former colony lived there for 1 year (aprox) and I cannot discard that they died because of some fungus or illness (I think it was stress, but I cannot be sure). So I really want to clean it properly.
Should I use alcohol? If so, should I dilute it? How much time should pass before I place a new colony there.
Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!
