Well, i was thinking about what foods should i try feeding her and how many times i should feed her in a week or so. I seems she is doing quite well in there.
Well variety is key, other than that keep an eye on how much she eats. You can't overfeed but letting the food go to waste would be a shame.

Sometimes i feed her a lot but she eats everything but sometimes she leaves it untouched.

Well take note of what she likes/dislikes, and remove uneaten food after a day or two. (She might eat when you're not looking...)

She will eat spiders, fruit flies, small crickets and sometimes termites. I don't know if trap jaw queens have stingers on the tip of the abdomen but giess she does and the stinger does inject venom. Like i said before, she "stings" any insect or spider i put in her outworld.
