So, I have recently decided to add my extra Stigmatomma queen with my other colony. This is a colony of, now, 23 workers, 1 larvae, and 2 queens. I have decided that I will include every worker and queen I find of this species to make a supercolony! As you probably know, this species typically has limits of 15-20 workers per colony and so with more queens the more capacity they have to have a larger colony. So I plan to update you guys on this as often as possible. The queen has adjusted well and the colony is so far working together correctly. Stigmatomma are known to accept several queens and workers from other colonies without problems. That is how it would work. I don't suggest doing this with other species as it could lead to disastrous effects. A supercolony of Stigmatomma pallipes!! Can't wait till it gets larger!! Let me know on how you guys think this will go and your thoughts on this!
