My queen is not laying any new eggs

Hi all!

My queen is not laying any eggs.
She is still alive but won't eat anything.
She went in hibernation.
Outside there are ants running around. So I know it is time.
What am I doing wrong?

I have them in my bedroom. Is the temp to cold?
Do I need a heatstick?

Please help!

What species is she? When did you catch her? When did she come out of hibernation? How long did she hibernate for? What part of the planet do you live in? What have you tried to feed her?
Keeping:
Tetramorium immigrans * Lasius Neoniger * Lasius Claviger * Messor Aciculatus * Myrmica Rubra * Camponotus Novaeboracensis * Camponotus Turkastanus * Pheidole Pallidula

Hi. Sorry for the late reply.

I think it is a lasius niger.
Last summer I cought her. Don't know the exact witch month. She is the only surviver of 4.
I don't thin she is out of her hibernation. She is not moving. She is still alive
I give her fruit flies and honey. She is not eating tho.
I live in the Netherlands. (Eu)
