I Caught A Fire Ant Queen And She Laid Eggs

I caught a new queen fire ant and she's already laid eggs. She's a beautiful queen ant, however I already own a pet fire ant colony and I fear letting her go back into the wild might not be ecologically prudent, seeing as fire ants are invasive where I live. Should we keep a second pet fire ant colony? I will need your help deciding what to do with this new queen fire ant of ours. Hope you enjoy this week's episode. Ant love forever!

    Im an og coming back after a few years and checking out recent videos I have no idea what you’ve done with the fire ant queen as of now I’d like to ask why not make a second fire ant colony? Do you not want to or do you just not have the space to hold another super colony and feel free to correct me but can’t you mox colony’s with the Phoenix empire Edit:I think you should keep the second ant colony and raise a second one as it would start a new story for the channel and maybe another super colony
