I don't think she's fert :(

So I live near Toronto and have my self 1 campanotus queen. I do not have a test tube but I'm sure she is happy in the small butter container I have her in. so every week I have to re water the cotton ball as it dries out. She is always calm until the lid is off. I have not seen any eggs. And tonight she even made a run for it and got about a foot away from the container before I got he back on the lid and back in her home. I'm concerned this is not fert queen behavior and are their any other ways I can tell she is or is not. I have not seen any other Queens this season as I can't get out much (work and being an adult 😭)
Thanks for reading and thank you for any help you might be able to give.

Having trouble getting the photos online to post them. She's is a half letter container. That I have in an other thick plastic container with a face cloth over the top to keep it dark. I don't have AC so my apartment is always between 25 to 30°c the only think in the container with her is the cotton ball I wet about once a week

You have to create an imgur account, then upload the photos there. Then you gotta copy the bb code link of the photo and paste it here.

I have a photo bucket account my internet is just garbage and was not able to upload the photos I will try again tonight at work so you should be able to see her setup tomorrow. That's the problem living in a small city in Canada you get no good internet and what you can get is over priced and a waist of time.

Im afraid she might not be fertile, one reason is she has her wings on. Now if she has decided to keep her wings on and is fertile my thoughts are she needs a testube because checking up on her is stressing her out, also make sure she is in a warm room as she might be waiting for temperatures to change
