So I got a colony of Myrmecocystus mexicanus a few months ago, it was a queen with one worker and they had a few eggs. I bought brood to boost them with they accepted them but only 2 of the pupae actually ended up eclosing. Now the queen has lost her first and only biological (due to old age most likely), but she still has the 2 boosted workers. She is serving as a replete which is probably why she hasn't laid eggs. I've been looking for brood to boost the colony with however no one has any at the moment it seems.
Anyone know what I can do?
