2 queens left one is infertile, the other has 4 large larvae as she lost all her larvae before she went in the fridge last year she laid like 6 eggs this year and she has only lost 2 this time! I might make a poll on what to name her.

Well good news is she has a pupa(finally) bad news is that two larvae were lost in the process(eaten) I am a little worried about the size of the pupa but I still am hoping it's not just a male.

The pupa has since enclosed into a beautiful worker and today the queen laid an egg and the worker placed it on the top of the queens thorax lol.

How'd that get up there? Did the queen just lay an egg on herself or did a worker think that would be a nice place to display the egg.
