So on the 12th I ordered a 1Q 1-10W colony of M. navajo from Carlbingustoes, they weren't able to ship until  2 days ago and they are expected to arrive on Saturday, the 27th. But because of the wait they gave me 2 free P. rugosus queens(I also have a permit for those) which I have been wanting for awhile. So yay!!!

I'm happy for you! I had a google and they look like cool ants! I hope all goes well for you <3

Also it took me a few reads to understand what 1Q 1-10W colony meant xD (new to site and ants)

I have some good news and some really bad news. I will start with the good news first; All Queens arrived alive. Bad news; All workers and brood are dead. This probably happened because of the fact that its cold here, the sand was tossed around during shipping, condensation. I know this because the queen was buried in sand when she arrived. Anyway this really sucks. All queens are now as happy as I can make them. The harvesters have seeds and substrate, one of them has a foraging area. The pot queen drank a bunch of sugar water last night so yeah. Pics will arrive really soon

It pains my heart to hear that the Navajo didn't do so good in shipping. Hopefully they recover.

Well the queen hasn't recovered yet and probably never will sadly. she hasn't laid any eggs. And unless she dies or does something this journal will not be updated. Though it is possible I may buy another colony of these.

Wow super sorry to hear that. I hate hearing about stories like this. Did you tell Carl about it? He could refund or give you new colonies. I’m not too sure of his policies though.

He can't give full refunds due to the fact this was interstate shipping, he knows, but he will give me a coupon to buy from his shop in the future.

I have some bad news :*(  :*( 20211220_085159.jpg?width=422&height=562she's gonna die soon :(

I really hoped this wouldn't happen but it did. I may get some more from SleepyAsianAnter after Christmas so maybe but her death is gonna hit me hard. This journal will turn into a Pogonomyrmex rugosus journal until I get more pots.
