I found my Tetramorium queens at different times (all without wings). The first was at 7:00 A.M. yesterday, second at about 6:30 P.M. yesterday, and a third today at 9:15A.M.. Also as RhodyAnts had mentioned "Wings is not a definite indicator of fertility." So their is still a chance that they are fertile.
Founding:

Camponotus nearcticus (x1)

Prenolepis imparis (x3)

Myrmica (Unknown) (x1)

Tetramorium (x2)

Exciting news! Just as I was beginning to doubt the fertility of our queens, and my ability to find a wingless queen, we happened to find one walking down my path about an hour ago!

Good to hear. Don't give up on queen one yet though. Keep her somewhere dark and quiet. She'll probably surprise you.
