Sure! What questions do ya have?
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.

They start to lay eggs at up to 2 weeks after being caught. Correct me if I'm wrong. Hey, post some photos of your queens! I'd love to see them.
