few questions on oregon ants

so recently i had a accident with my queen and she ended up passing away..honestly never realized how chocked up it would make me to know her colony is now doomed ): her brood is still going and small about 10-15 members altogether i was wondering what i should do with them?

also i have not found much info on this but does anyone know where to find the nuptial flights of ants or know the neptual flights in oregon?

i was also wondering if there are any inspiring gan farmers near roseburg ive checked the project but no one seems to be in oregon and i would love it if someone was considering joining that project soon

thanks for any responses! ^.^

i believe its tetramorium caespitum after looking through hundreds of species thats what she looked closest to only thing is i caught her late October which was really late in the flight schedule for that species i believe

I find it hard to believe that Tetramorium flew in October.

It's not impossible (especially considering Eurasian Tetramorium,) but I would want to see it to believe it.

We do need somewhat clearer photos, but how long is she?

my cameras wont focus in when i tried to get a clear shot and now that she is gone i can only get a shot of the brood she was 8-10 millimeters her nanitics are about 2-3 millimeters long

i was also wondering if there was a place to find oregon ant neptual flight schedules or know the earliest oregon ants fly ?
