To find that the ants have built their fungus in the tubes during the heat spell and that the main fungus has again shrunk considerably. I had given them 23 large Blackberry leaves, obe apple cut in half and an orange cut in half. Most had gone. At least this year there were no escapes 🙂 I have also spotted a dying queen in the tube, unusually this one was being attended to by some of the tiniest castes which i have not seen before. I am hoping this isn’t the original queen.
As for the fungus in the tubes, i am going to leave it. I think when it cools down the ants will take it back to the main fungus tank. We will see.
This queen died, i really hope it’s not “THE QUEEN”
