These are from a feeding session a few days ago.

I’m about to put my colonies down for diapause in a day or two. At my a feeding session last week, I decided to euthanize the last of my failed C. novaeboracensis colony. There were a few stunted larva and four workers. Sad to see them go but I still have 3 colonies, 2 C. penns, and a C. americanus. I washed out the nest with a warm water/vinegar mixture and had it air dry for a few days. I was toying with the idea of moving my May 2022 C. pennsylvanicus colony into it before diapause since they’re up to 15-20 workers but I’m undecided. Here’s to a restful fall to all of you and a robust 2023 anting season!
