There probably waiting for their first workers to emerge and then they'll either start laying again or go into hibernation.
Currently caring for a Lasius Niger colony :D

My queen did this, she laid 11 eggs, all of them hatched. She ate most of them thanks to my roommate... She hasn't laid anything since, idk why this is but I believe she will begin laying again once the pupae hatch.
I keep feeling like I should say 'Wake Up' instead of 'Hatch'.
