(she may not have mated) Has the queen laid eggs? How long have you had the queen? What I suspect the reason could be is, the queen has eggs in...

Formica sp. from the pallidefulva group. Don't forget measurements next time!
Thank you so much! I've been watching videos on these amazing ants, and they seem to strongly resemble Camponotus. Again, thanks for the help. Ant Love for Life.

I just recently caught a queen on 6/5/18. I placed her in a test tube setup and she immediately started laying eggs. I suspect she may be a Camponotus Castaneus, but I am not sure.
Thanks,
