Solenopsis fugax is polygynous ?

Hello guys !

The winter is over and it's time to wake up my queens.
I have three solenopsis fugax queens, and I think to put two together in a test tube .
Will they work or kill each other?
Thanks in advance ! :)
My colonies :
lasius niger x3
formica cunicularia
tetramorium sp x2
myrmica sp (founding)

My dream species -- Polyergus rufescens

it does not say they are polygamous. So they most likely will kill each other

whoops lol. But I Solenopsis fugax also are polygynous like Prenolepis imparis. I think I meant to say Solenopsis fugax but I was super excited about my Prenolepis queens that I accidentally typed out Prenolepis imparis.
