Greetings Ant Lovers/AC Family,
A killer Cordyceps fungus killed my queen ants. I have been caring for a trio sorority of weaver ant queens (Oecopylla smaragdina) looking forward to them founding a colony so they could spin their iconic leaf basket nests in leaves. However, tragedy struck when I discovered the queens totally engulfed in a lethal fungus. But there is some good news.
