Hi, I'm currently keeping a few colonies of Myrmecocystus, one colony of M mimicus, and two M yuma (one colony and one queen). My M mimicus colony has around eight workers currently, I was wondering when I should move them into a tarheel ants mini hearth? I understand It can be stressful to the ants if one were to move a colony too soon, however, If I were to simply connect the nest would it be ok? Also, one of my M yuma queens has failed to open and pupa, I have manually opened one, but the poor worker was rejected by the queen. I was thinking to cut my losses and give here brood to another colony, thoughts?
