Hey ant keepers, i am fairly new to ant keeping and i have encountered a problem. I have caught 2 beautiful Lasius Niger Queens and put them in test tubes which i made from tutorials. They are laying eggs beautifully, but in one of the two tubes the cotton became yellow(after 1 week of ants being in tubes), and i am pretty sure i can see a little bit of mold. (Photos included). Should i move the queen to another test tube ? if yes, how should i do it ?. What do i do to prevent this from happening again ? Id appreciate any sort of tips or critic. Cheers !
