The queen of Colony C had an uninvited guest once. Two guests, actually. One I had to remove and the other... well... the other one I only found pieces of. Seems she killed it and ate it!

Colony C now has four workers and Colony B has two! I think one of the pupa in Colony C is dead, though. It's getting so dark it's practically black now. Never had to deal with something like this before: any advice?

I really messed up tonight.
I walked right into another mating flight, ill-prepared as always. I found a queen, a lasius of some sort. I've always wanted a queen lasius because they're just so fat and shiny and pudgy. They're like the aunts of the ant world. Anyway, I put her in a envelope and kept on searching for others. For some reason unknown to even me, I kept the envelope in my hand as I searched for more queens. So, one corner of the envelope bends in my hand and there's this soft but audible CRUNCH.
I tapped the queen out of the envelope and she's not only merely dead, she's really most sincerely dead.
Talk. About. Devastated.
I searched for another laisus queen but couldn't find one. I found another queen of a different species (crematogaster?) but I really wanted the lasius.
