Hey guys, sorry I haven't updated in a while.

They're eating 3 fruit flies a day a small or a lateralis nymph every other day they. The brood now totals around 100 and 16 nanitics . The next batch of workers to eclose should be slightly bigger. Smile

I took these videos on the 18th, but never got round to uploading it. kinda crazy how much brood there is now What a Face , will get an updated one.

I forgot to mention I also fed them some bee pollen, which they went crazy over Surprised Razz I will try them on a teeny tiny amount of honey water.

They can but it really depends on how much food the colony gets.

I just asked and some even said they can have them in the second brood if they are given enough food also depends on the colony.

Here's hoping then. They've already ate the fruit flies from yesterday and have started foraging again! Oh, I also have some mealworms but they are way too big atm.

Hello Salt, her last Larvae eclosed but the worker has once again gone missing. I have a sinking feeling this queen won't produce any more brood sad

Thanks Myrm and Salt. It's very upsetting. Hopefully, touchwood, Blue continues to thrive.
