They were off heat for a couple weeks but I recently put them back on and the brood is beginning to grow extremely quickly again.
Some decent pictures:

I thought I updated this recently but looks like I didn't. I've been feeding 10-40 large mealworms and 8-16mL of sugar water a day. They have been growing slowly but surely and continue to be very aggressive.36b669ee8776eb44e1d39258a9a19832.jpg2d84d18f6d1e86667504b1bc46cf8749.jpg18b23431f1961b1266cee726aa92602a.jpg0c4434cac554324d37659003edf9871b.jpg

They dried up (even though there was condensation in the nest) and lost well over 1000 workers. I decided to put an end to them and freeze the colony. I moved them one by one into this foraging area and put them in the freezer.
