Hello, every one,My name is niexin,and I'm a Chinese,I like Messor very much .This is Messor aciculatus I have
collected which live in local ,I keep the new queens for about 3 month,I'll show the pictures of them,but My English
is not very well , :mrgreen:

this is picuture of when I collected the new queens,Messor aciculatus is polygyn so they together dig one hole.It is very strange that some workers is helping them,I collected queens and workers back home.

The workers can help the queens rubbing the seeds,It is helpful for new queens with only eggs.
