Oh good to know, last year was my first year. Sadly the Queen's didn't make it. I think the culprit was the rose petals and black berry leaves I gave them from my backyard.

Turns out my grandparents (whom I live with) hire Gardner's who use pesticides on their plants, didn't realize that till a couple weeks ago :(

I am gonna try again next year, Butler me know how cornflakes work out. I also know people who use oatmeal, that also worked for me.

What!!! So you cook for them. Chicken Tonight is a sauce for chicken which you buy in a jar. I have this picture of Ric pouring over a stove preparing a meal for his colony.

They love nettles and the fungus is growing very nice and growing well with the brood boating out of the fungus I don't no how many workers I have but they go crazy when I put the leafs in pod and they rush up the tubing and be around 50+ on the leafs cleaning and then start to cut them and carry them down there even smaller ones sitting on the leafs bee carried by the very larger workers.
