My ants just woke up some weeks ago, and the only big larvae there was hanging hole hibernation, just became pupae and then some time later disappear, defective ant I guess.
How ever there was small pile of eggs and a quite new little larvae, what is now at the moment in cocoon stage.
At the moment I have the queen (sure), 5 workers, 1 cocoon, 3 big larvae, 1 small one, and 2 big piles of eggs.
My Camponutos are loving all the fly's i drop on the front of the test tube ^^
One thing, I had some break out's with the liquid Vaseline, don't know what did go wrong, at the moment I switched to talcum what is working like a charm!
