So, I will need to transport a queen of mine in a few days and I'm worried. I know she'll go crazy if I just transporter her as she is. She's very sensitive. I've heard about how you are able to refrigerate ants to slow them down so that they are more calm. My only concern with this is that she has no workers and her pupae are enclosing soon. Will the refrigeration affect the pupae? Also, how cold can you keep a queen and her pupae before they, well, die?
Someone put my concerns at ease!
