Just patience and peeled eyes, my friend.
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

Keeping Tetramorium immigrans, Lasius Neoniger

Also, the lasius queen will hibernate after being caught, so a long journey after you catch her my friend.

x2 componotus consobrinus
x1 iridimrmex bicknelli
x5+ Linepithema humile
x1 unknown queen (either phiodole or camponotus)

I am pretty sure Lasius Neoniger nuptial flights are finished. Even if you manage to find one, queens caught this late won't lay eggs. They'll hibernate and start next year.
