I planned to film a general update, well I'm still filming!
I'm currently flicking between the filming & editing of 5 episodes!
My 6 month old son, is also teething, all the madness of having a 2 year old as well, so I've had long hours, short sleeps and still trying to get all the content in-between!
please forgive the delay.
The Nico's chewed their way out of their acrylic nest, the Carebara also made a break for it, luckily the Carebara have a new replacement pod, with some nice new improvements to the design, remember the pods they are in were designed for the Polyrhachis, not a small escaping, chewing Sp with super majors!
Instead of a general update I've ended up filming episodes for each escapade!
I also have some sad news my Messor Arenarius, passed away, not sure why I checked her on my 14 day rotational checks and she was curled up, she had eaten her brood a few times, she just didn't settle, she was in the incubator with the Messor Barbarus Bi-Colour and the Messor Wasmanni at a steady 25°c, they are both doing amazing, both have nanitics, not a great outcome with the Arenarius, really upset about the loss of another Queen, hopefully I will get another chance with the species, I haven't had much luck to be honest.
