should I feed my newly caught lasius neoniger queen?

So I caught a lasius neoniger queen on the ninth, but I'm not sure whether or not to give her a little drop of honey yet, or to wait until I put her into hibernation.

Re: Lasius Neoniger

Lasius Neoniger first time journal

September ninth I caught a Lasius Neoniger Queen! She is my first queen ever. :D She landed on my friends shoulder and then flew down to the grass where I caught her. Unfortunately, one on her antennas broke off while I was trying to move her into the test tube set up. Crossing my fingers she will l...
