It had a bronzy colour and the remaining workers were not bothering with it , I warmed them up and things looked promising , the queen was being tended and i hoped all was going ok , there were only about 15 workers when i counted and no eggs larva or pupae. Well this i think is what has caused the queen to die .
I'm really sorry to hear that I've currently got my own colony and the temperatures in my room fluctuate quite a lot. At night it can drop to about 15 C and during the day can reach 25C. I've currently got a very small colony and you can check out my journal "Atta cephalotes Bicolor," I hope you have better luck next time!!
