I have some D. Bureni queens, but not sure if they mated. If they have workers I will reach out to you so I don’t have a lot of extras.

Edit: I am not completely sure how, but they are all dead except for a winged queen(Who has laid eggs). They were in a drawer that gets some vibrations every day, so it may be that. Now most queens with them have either eaten the eggs or died completely. Good thing I put the winged one in the unmated stash… maybe some of the other “unmated” queens will turn out to be mated…

Sorry, I should have changed that. I am no longer looking for brood. Also, solely brood will not survive shipping.
