Journal Entry: X221 Temnothorax curvispinosus Colony

Date: [06/12/2024]


Welcome to the journal of my "X221" Temnothorax curvispinosus ant colony. This entry marks the beginning of chronicling the journey and progress of my colony. Currently, the colony consists of approximately 30 workers and 3 queens.

Current Status

The colony is in the process of transitioning into a new hydrostone nest that I have constructed. This nest is designed to provide a more suitable and stable environment for the ants. The move is progressing slowly, but I anticipate that within a few days, the entire colony will have relocated to their new home.

Moving Process

The migration to the new nest is gradual, as the workers and queens explore and adapt to the new environment. I am taking care to ensure that the conditions within the hydrostone nest are optimal for their needs, including humidity and temperature levels.

  • Worker Activity: The workers have been actively exploring the new nest, carrying small amounts of brood and resources into it.
  • Queen Behavior: The queens remain relatively stationary, likely assessing the new environment before committing to the move.
  • Hydrostone Nest: The nest seems to be well-received by the workers so far, with several chambers being investigated for suitability.
Next Steps
  • Monitor the colony‚Äôs progress in moving into the new nest.
  • Ensure the hydrostone nest maintains proper humidity and temperature levels.
  • Document any significant behaviors or changes in the colony dynamics during the move.
Closing Thoughts

I'm excited to see how the colony adapts to their new home and how it will impact their growth and development. Stay tuned for more updates on the X221 colony's journey!
