Uh im 12 and im new to ants but i recently caught a trapjaw queen alate with wings but the season is over right?
The problem is that she has been opening her wings and scratching it and i suspect that she is trying to shed her wings.
Currently i have 4 wild workers which sort of 'obey' her and i see that the queen and one other worker have been guarding a little house but i have not seen any eggs.

May i ask if the queen is trying to shed wings and may have laid eggs before shedding wings?

Only if they're from the same colony.
