Polyrhachis Ammon queen got another new worker. But they also decided to pile all the seeds on the wet cotton
Next is a Polyrhachis Australis colony I collected from in between insulation foil. I had to remove them because I sprayed bug spray above them unknowingly while removing another colony of Crematogaster sp. going into the outdoors Bird Aviary.
I blu tacked some leaves to the side of a container and they moved right in.
Thirdly, One of my Polyrhachis vermiculosa got bigger and had many workers sitting outside the test tubes on the black paper. So I had to add another tube and a bigger outworld. They moved right in. (far left)
They also have lots of males coming out so that is taking up more space.
After I added the new outworld they hung out in the tubing and are still there 12hours later.
A few weeks ago I ordered a Polyrhachis Phryne Queen from queenofants and the queen came with a worker and pupa. She has laid an egg since.
Lastly to my very much happiness and excitement, I found a Polyrhachis Daemeli Queen today!
I was outside cleaning up the back patio and saw a silver spiny ant. I wanted to know what kind it was to ID it so caught it in a vile. I later Saw it was a Queen! I was so happy I did a happy dance. xD
PS: I've caught so many queens lately I've ran out of 15mm and 18mm test tubes. (brought like 10-20 of each) I only have 20mm and 13mm left now and it seems I need to restock.xD
