I caught i camponotus queen 2 weeks ago. now she is in a test tube and has never shed her wing, never laid any eggs and it seems the only purpose in her life is to get out of the test tube. should i release her she has not been in my house very long to i highly doubt their would be any pathogens on her

sorry i forgot. she was identified as c. pennsylvanicus

i just looked at pictures of camponotus Castaneus and i really wished she was that colorful. Sadly, she is the normal black
