Hi, I'm new here
Last night I found two queen ants, but the wings have not been released. whether that sign has not been married?
Thx before. :)

This question has been asked in numerous posts and threads; the answer is that there's no way to tell if a queen is mated unless you see it happen or if you remove the unmated queens from their mother colony (definitely not mated).

Particularly in tropical regions, queens may keep their wings for a long time.
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.
