Hi,

I have 2 big larvae! Now, I'm waiting for nice nymphs, to have a great generation of workers! I leave my home for a week, so maybe, at my coming back, I'll have a good surprise.

Hello

Hi,

It's Kyomen. With the success of the other blog Ants1, I decided to create the same blog, but translated in English. With my friend, Bibi675, we translate all the blog, with our English, so it's not perfect, but it's better than Google translator :)! Thanks again to Bibi, who helps me for this translation!
