Up to 5 pupae this morning. I gave this colony part of a big cricket last night. Big feeding response of at least 10 workers.

No new enclosed workers yet. But I expect we should have some any day now. The small chamber by the heat cable is full of brood.

I've ordered this colony a new custom Nucleus, which I expect will arrive about the time they'll need it. (Which will allow me to re-use the fallen fortress for my smaller Pogonomyrmex colony.)

A Nucleus is a massive nest, though.
