I found a lasius niger queen on the 2nd August and she laid some eggs which still haven't hatched, the water has run out and I don't know what to do. I've tried attaching another tube but she doesn't want to move. She is still standing over her eggs but shouldn't they have hatched by now? I found her on holiday and it was a hot, bumpy 5 hour drive home, I'm worried that her eggs might be dead. Please can anyone help?

Don't worry they won't be dead Just wish for the best and don't worry
and did you realize that they probably like humidity.
But the only thing is the bumpy ride because it probably scared the queen and that is why she played he eggs late :)
