I have a lasius niger queen from a previous colony which died of food contaminated with pesticide. I placed her in a test tube with another lasius queen with eggs and brood. They took to each other nicely, I know lasius niger only accept one queen per colony. A worker has gone into its cocoon stage, I know when she hatches one will die. My question is, because I don't have anywhere to put the other queen, do I try to seperate them and the brood or allow one to be killed and used for protein?
