All Lio colonies now have workers, biggest colony at around 10-14 workers strong.

Yes! Finally! Queen Glory finally layed some eggs after a five month break. Is this normal for formica  :o

As for my other colonies, Lio colony one has 18-22 workers, Lio colony two has 6-9 workers with plenty more coming, and Lio colony three has 12-14 workers. The Night Runners have just been in a kind of mid-year hibernation and have not developed at all.

Yes! Finally! I have pictures!

 

Liometopum luctuosum colony #1. They have plenty of brood, and are eating very nicely.

Liometopum luctuosum colony #2. this colony moved into the entrance of their outworld so there is no use trying to take pictures of their queen and brood.

Liometopum luctuosum colony #3. This colony has been doing the best of all my Liometopum colonies. They have an ever increasing brood pile and an insane appetite.

The Night Runners. Nothing to update.... Except for pictures.

The Darkwings. They have pupae! This colony is finally starting to get in their groove.

And then my unnamed camponotus Modoc colony. This colony is growing nicely, with plenty of brood.

And finally my Aphaenogaster. This colony had a huge die off mainly due to me not hydrating their setup. so now they are down to two queens, one worker, and a pile of eggs.

Any name suggestions for the Camponotus and Liometopum colonies are welcome!
