So I went to NCAR in Boulder, CO yesterday and found a colony of Temnothorax cf rugatulus which I had been looking for for for a year now. They have about 6 queens(used to be 7 but I had to euthanize one after ColAnt735 brought to my attention that she had a nematode, rip) and a lot of workers like 200. And lots of brood.

I moved them into a THA discus and they lived in the tube for a few weeks and started to die off, at somepoint they decided to move into the nest and now they are thriving with tons of eggs, larvae and some pupae.get_attachment_url?url_type=FIFE_URL&con
