last week i caught two monomorium minimum queens. originally i thought they were tetramorium but i noticed a bump between their gaster and thorax, right before the gaster and that they have more defined yellow lines on their gaster. One queen died last night i think that she was unfertilized. The other queen is doing well and i think eggs are just hatching into larvae!  :)  :yahoo: I'm excited for this colony to get bigger and to raise them! I can't find a-lot of info on this colony so any info such as temperature, diet, egg to worker time, etc. is appreciated! I will updating around weekly or so.


Colonies I am keeping:

 

x2 Brachymyrmex Depilis Queens

x2 Camponotus Modoc Queens

x4 Tetramorium Immigrans colonies
