Well, the chili queen finally calmed down. My girlfriend rescued her from the chilis restroom, and has been in a tube since. Relentless, she would pull at the cotton to get out, she didn’t like it. After the first week, she first rejected two Tetramorium cocoons, and placed them directly on the wet cotton, which started to mold after the first week. Unable to coax her out, or remove the mold, I leave it. She’s added everything to the mold pile since then, and has dug into it. Sh
I've given her 2 cocoons, pollen, and a small piece of apple. I can’t tell if she’s laying since she’s surrounded by her mold walls, but she is a lot more relaxed.
Any help? Is this normal?
