she was a tetramorium immigrans! her test tube was perfectly set-up and i kept her in a dark drawer, before she escaped one time i checked on her, she was in the middle of the cotton and the glass so i added more cotton for protection, and not even a week has past and she escaped! what went wrong? i have another tetramorium queen and she settled in perfectly and laid a batch of eggs, but this girl did not like it and escaped! what do i do? what went wrong? and should i be concerned of her wandering my house?!

you should not bee worried about her in your house. first their is a really low chance she could survive the finding and making her founding chamber process. next she also has a really low chance of surviving in you house for the founding process because of stress and humidity and temperature problems. also she most likely went outside or died so no need to worry.
