Formica argentea queens are great diggers!

Formic queens that I have kept in the past don't dig a claustral chamber. They build a claustral nest! The queens construct a network of chambers and tunnels, and wander from chamber to chamber carrying their eggs around without setting them down. Any explanation for this odd behavior?
