Camponotus semitestaceus

Hello! I just caught a Camponotus semitestaceus queen and am wondering if she needs to be hibernated? I saw on a video that they dont necessarily need to. Anyone with more knowledge care to help?

Re: Late Queen?

Did a little research, and if somebody can confirm, I would greatly appreciate it!!
I believe this queen to be of the Camponotus semitestaceus species

Re: Late Queen?

Re: Keeping an established queen w/ out workers

Okay, so I recently caught a Camponotus nearcticus queen, and she had 5 workers. The sad part is THAT I LITERALLY COULDN’T CATCH THE WORKERS FOR THE LIFE OF ME.
