Hi! I am very new here and just wanted to share my tetramorium immigrans queen and her road to 100 workers.
I am from the antscanada forum but everybody left it and went here so I am expecting better here.
Here’s the story on this queen I’ll update you guys in 5 days.
but here’s the story so far. So i woke up around 7:30 in the morning on Father’s Day. I woke up to get dressed and went outside. I was snooping around my backyard to only find a wingless tetramorium queen darting across the pavement i jumped up and i put a cup over her then i slid a card under her and there you have it a beautiful queen. I didn’t know she was mated so i put her in the closet and checked on her 2 days later. She had a massive batch of eggs. That was 9 days ago when I found her and she layed eggs on the 22nd so her eggs have been incubating for 6-7 days now. They hatched today and I gave her 2 fruit flies and she gobbled them up. So now she has around 16 chubby larvae. And around 14 eggs left to hatch.
I’ll update you in 5 days. I am open to any comments, suggestions, advise. Thanks!
