I was actually surprised to see the caps emerge. Not only are they basically in the section under the eucs, but it is covered with pea gravel and the soil under those tiny rocks is the seriously depleted "top soil" that is the foundation, and it gets a lot of water in that spot during rains... so, this is a terrific sign.

It seems that they are almost always rectangular, and rarely U-shaped or round. Could there be some shapes that could exploit water, sun, wind, etc. even better? Especially when combining mounds in different shapes?
Just spitballing something below. Could put a shallow waterhole in the middle for insects, and the shape makes it easy to put several of them in a big clump of mounds.
