Okay Will do Very Happy

I'm happy to report I've seen a few eggs in a few workers mouths Very Happy and the queens of this species are for some reason very active [they will even "hunt" so to speak on the dead mealworm I provided them!]

That is great news about the eggs.

Yes, Myrmica queens are vary bold and don't think twice about coming out of the nest to follow a food trail laid by the workers. The workers sometimes pick them up and take them back into the nest. Razz

Yes I've seen that happen or a mob of workers will be right there by the queen just in case.
