Hey guys! Just got 15 Lasius cf americanus queens. They all are doing good, none have eggs at the moment. Will update as they progress. 1-15 what queen do you think will be the most successful? . 5b5da716d25c0d76c8a9eac02f536142.jpg0f974e371ea8910877ef99490f2da130.jpg2a71d8b3a224c0c34a53ddd55a11a9bb.jpg
