Yeah so my Camponotus Discolor attempted an escape last night/ yesterday at some point. Apparently they decided, as a group, that petroleum jelly was OK to just walk on. They didn't care one bit. Just walked right over it.
So now I sit and wait for fluon on the mail, and monitor the new, alcohol and talcum powder, classic mix, which seems to be really working.
I was coming downstairs to shoot my YouTube livestreams (very time sensitive) and had more than a few things to run through and set up beforehand and saw a few dozen girls up to 10 feet away from the tank and scouting all over the outside of their tank/ table. So... 45 minutes, precious minutes, later, some of them were returned to their home and the talcahol (TRADEMARK!) barrier was put in place. Then last night and today spent a total of about 2 hours collecting them wtih an aspirator, or simply flicking them back into the tank as they explored the rim, trying to get back home to report on what they had found in this expansive, concrete world.
So yeah... I'm sure I lost a few, but I'm estimating roughly 200 had escaped.
These girls definitely keep me on my toes!
