I'm correct?

My Formica Subcericia queen has one worker. That's it. No eggs, just the one worker.

Q2: She won't lay anymore eggs because of the time of year and Formica don't keep eggs over the winter?

Re: Lasius neoniger question

No, Lacius neoniger is one of the most “fully clustral” species out there, they lays their eggs the following year. Happy anting!
