(Assuming you don't want to sell them)
Usually you would keep them just in case your other queens die for some reason
If you really don't want them or to sell them well then I guess you could just release them in their natural habitat. I would recommend starting the colonies and then selling them though as it has many benefits.
Current Queens and or Colonies
Unless they are released immediately after their nuptial flight, they are basically doomed to die. How many do you have? Finding a home for them would be a better idea.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.
