Too cold here to be honest. It's such a small colony I'm sure they won't forage too far.

I found [hopefully] a bigger ant colony living in an old plant pot thing [it's a huge pot] and am currently getting it out of the pot before someone chucks the whole pot away. It has been weird.... Lots of callow workers for some reason. I'm hoping to try this on outdoors this time [it is too big to try indoors. They might find their way into something I don't want them to.] I'll keep you updated.

I found at least one queen, I just need to get tons more of the workers. I want all I can get before the pot contents get used.

No sadly I'm going to be waiting until a much larger species of ant queen has workers.
