It's still gonna be 6-8 weeks. Especially the pupa stage takes ages (about 4 weeks).
But she's on a good way.

My Camponotus castaneus has had some pupa for about 2 weeks I'd say, give or take. I can't wait till they eclose. It my favorite species I have. She is such a beautiful ember color...and that's why her name is Ember XD.

XD I go like all the time. I don't even have all set in my signature....which I do need to update. I also have a cpl Crematogaster queens along with others...i love my hobby lol. Then again, I have always loved mature and especially insects. Dunno why, guess im just a "bug-nerd for life" lol although true "bugs" are different than most think XD. Not all insects are "bugs"
