Lasius niger egg hatching time?

Hi all,

I hope someone can help me. I have a lasius niger queen with about 5 eggs. 3 are very small and white and 2 are bigger and brown. I have had her now in a test tube setup for about 4 months. When i got her she had just laid her eggs.

I want to know how long they should take to hatch. The water is her tube is running low and i dont know how im going to add more water. 

Thank you

Move her to a fresh test tube by attaching another test tube to her test tube and allow some airflow. The eggs might not be growing because hibernation is coming soon.
