I have been given this queen ant by a friend who caught 40 queens during their nuptial flight this summer, it was in late eight month of the year

The queen already has its first generation of workers (8 of them) and few eggs, i just recently moved her from epruvete test tube nest into a new one because it started growing mold. Now i dont want to disturb her again but neither me nor friend know what specie it is.

Here is the picture of the ants, i was unable to take queen pictures because i dont want to disturb her again.

Location of the ant is in region of Balkans, grassland.

Lenght of ant (3-5mm)

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
