In my experience they don't really lay eggs everyday. At least not in the start. The queen usually lays around 8-12 eggs the day after she's been cought if you let her be in the dark for a good time. After that no more eggs are being layed until her workers emerge but right before they do she lays a new batch of eggs. After that point she will lay eggs depending on how often you feed your colony. If you have any further questions feel free to ask me.

Before I answer your question... Do you usually see Lasius niger worker ants walking around on the pavement or anywhere close to where you live?
