I just wanted to let you all know about my queen Lasius Niger. I caught her a moth or so ago, and put her in a CD case set up.
Now she has around 10 quite big larvae, and some more eggs. I wanted to tell you all because this is the furthest I have gone with
a queen without brood boosting or any other sort of cheating. I'm really happy about it! The pile of brood now looks twice as big as the queen herself.
I'm hoping they will evolve into a great bunch of workers!
