I found a wingless camponotus queen a few weeks ago and tubed her. She still has not laid any eggs. Does anyone know what would happen if I put larvae from another colony in with this queen? Do you think it would entice her to start laying her own, at the same time taking no care of the foreign larvae, or would it stress her out, causing more delays or problems? I've tried feeding a fresh rollypolly, but she did not touch it. She has taken to honey, however I don't know how often and how much to give her, and I don't want to dirty up her tube with uneaten food items. Any guidance would be appreciated.
How did you find the queen?
