Caught a queen alate on a back road about 3 in the morning on July 3rd, when I had the dog out. This is just a thread of her success so far.

She laid eggs right away.





Larva and cocoons two months later.





Then came the first worker...



Not long after, lots of workers eclosed...







More to come....

It's because they just eclosed. It takes a while for them to gain that hard red look. I will do a picture update soon. Alot of them have gotten that red color by now.
