Tips on Formica Plz

I caught my queens the 28th of July, when can I expect workers? I want to be ready so I can give my queens the best care. Also, could anyone provide some tips on keeping this species?

It really depends on the species of ant, some (like campanotus) take longer to eclose than others, as their workers are larger. However it usually takes roughly Formica about 4-5 weeks I believe.

Keep them in a calm dark area while they are in their founding testube. Don't stress them or they'll eat the eggs
1 Tapinoma Sessile colony
32 Tetramorium queens and 1 colony
5 Aphaenogaster Tennesseensis
3 Camp. Pennsylvanicus colonies
1 Camp. Americanus colony
1 Solenopsis Molesta Colony
1 Crematogaster Cerasi colony
1 Formica Subsericia colony
