In December she should have been hibernating, not trying to found a colony. That is most likely why she doesn’t have any workers.
At what latitude do ants stop hibernating? Do all ants hibernate in Texas? I guess I don't know how cold it gets in Texas. . .
It goes down to 0C or below at night in Texas during the winter.
Tetramorium immigrans * Lasius Neoniger * Lasius Claviger * Messor Aciculatus * Myrmica Rubra * Camponotus Novaeboracensis * Camponotus Turkastanus * Pheidole Pallidula

Willwithants, I’m still learning about ant hibernation (Brumation) but at the beginning of last December we were having abnormally warm and humid weather so a lot of plants animals and bugs were out as if it was not winter but the ants definitely seemed sluggish after it got colder.

I see! Yeah, even if you keep them warm, they get sluggish. Such accurate internal clocks. . .
