Queen Glory has another pupae and a fresh batch of eggs!!! Also I expect them to have a new worker tomorrow!!!

 

The night runners are doing awesome, they have some newly hatched larvae!!!

 

As for the other colony's the lasius have a few more eggs, but the other colony's have not progressed.

A name I thought of is "The Darklings" since like Darkling beetles they're black colored.
