Hint: Large Oecophylla smaragdina colonies have many branch nests (polydom) but only one main nest with a mated Queen. Because we don't want to cheat our customers we will only sell opened (verified) nests with guaranteed mated Queens which were usually kept by us several months before we sell. Unopened nests can contain parasites or vermins (Mites, cockroaches, etc.). So called low-cost colonies without Queen are wasted money because you don't take pleasure in very long.
