About how long foes it take for false honeypot ant eggs to develop?

I currently have two false honeypot queens in a testtube set up. Apparently one of them has now laid eggs. How long does it take for them to mature?

Most ants take around a month and a half to mature.

That being said, this is a generalization, not 100% accurate.

I think about 2 months.

Going off the dates on this journal, http://www.formiculture.com/topic/2951-okeedoke22s-prenolepis-imparis-journal/ , he caught them 3/24 and had nanatics as of 6/5 , so about 2-2.5 months.
