Lester is right on the money. In addition Harvesters are very difficult to start from fertilized queens. There seems to be something lacking in captivity which they need to successfully get a good start. I have never succeeded in starting colonies of harvesters this way. In addition they are very slow if you do manage to get them going you will never produce enough ants to adequately feed your HL. If you have the lizard now and are just looking into food supplies this was a bad way to go, you should have had the food ready to go then gotten the HL. For the most part unless you live in a state with good summer monsoons queens are done flying for the season.
