    Thought I would out one thread together with all the colonies. We ended up with 8 huge colonies in one building.

    Colonies 1 & 2................. Colony #3 ....................Colony #4......................... Colony #5

    Is it close and convenient location to set up an out yard? The location is proven that it can support a number of colonies.

    Good idea.

    It's close enough. I may ask around. I know I can't put in same exact location as they are gonna be building something in it's place, but maybe I can get close.

    FYI, We have spotted 3 queens and the first colony we got last Sunday has 3 capped queen cells and one almost capped. So they will be queen right
