So my new camponotus colony now has 2 nanitics, and some brood. had 3 nanitics but one of them died not sure why. well now I see what i think is mold on the cotton, the cotton is also almost dry. I connected their testube to a new one with some tape in between. made one dark and one light, the queen is trying to move the brood to the new testube but the workers keep pushing her back, picking up the brood and putting it back in the moldy testube.
What do I do to make the workers and the queen agree on the move? I'm not sure when to feed them again if they don't want to move since I have the two testtubes stuck together. Don't want them to starve or anything.
