I captured this colony a few weeks ago and lost about 8-10 workers due to moving them around. The colony is stable now with 35+ workers 3-4 new workers and a large batch of brood (40+) This specie is quite picky when it comes to feeding but I managed to figure out what they like. Meal worms and spiders seem to be the only thing they take in for protein and most sweet liquids will do.
I have 10-12 new workers since last update and more on the way. I was excited to see my first major born in captivity, shes quite beautiful. I'm going camping soon so I would like to give you more pics to enjoy.
I had much joy watching this colony grow from 80-90 workers to 150+. I don't think the current larvae batch (25) will be born this year which is fine with me. I got a nice surprise from the current pupa batch a huge major. links are only visible for registered users
