I saw the males on their abdomens.

I caught a queen who was mating a couple years ago, but I tried to mover her to a test tube instead of a vial with sand and well... she didn't survive the process.

I'm having some good luck with three-queen-trios right now, and all of them have eggs.

I would say mono is more risky than poly(jk) :lol: . Prenos do really good in poly colonies since they are extremely friendly with other queens so there is really minor chance of them to kill each other.
