Can you explain what you mean by you bred her?
Did she lay eggs and are there pupa in the tube?
Usually if you find a Tertamorium sp E in late September, she is most likely a reject. Meaning she may have founded a new colony with another queen but was then attacked and kicked out by that other queen. If she is a reject and there are no pupa in the tube, she may never found a colony.

I caught her as a alate. There was a nest that was sending out alates so I caught both a male and female alates and I put them in a small container and the next day she had lost her wings and the male died.

^ Sounds Like Incest-Breeding To Me.

I know it was pretty cool.m, but right now I'm waiting for the queen to lay her first batch of eggs and i had her for two weeks now.
