Try 2

5/9/2018

I found 4 queens on 5/4/2018, and 1 on 5/5/2018. checked on them today and 4 out of 5 laid 2 to 4 eggs. The one that didn't lay eggs is the one I caught on 5/5/2018.

There was one escape on 5/4/2018 but I found her after a while.

If there are any tips I would be happy to receive them.

whoops, I misidentified there actually Camponotus chromaiodes queens if google images are to believe. But I think there care would be similar.

patience lots of patients. Also if you are trying out something new with your ants don't do that on the first set of workers a camponotus queen has because you don't want to lose any workers from accidents.
