I caught 7 queen ants Iridomyrmex Sp. I think, and I've had them for 3 weeks and only 2 have laid eggs. I'm not sure if 3 weeks is a lot but my last queen laid eggs about 2 weeks after capture. is this normal, or not? I'm in Perth Australia and its mid-autumn. Thnx!
"Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest." Proverbs 6:6-8

8x Iridomyrmex sp.
1x Pheidole sp.
