The changes which make a queen happen during the larval stages. Stimulating ovulation is interesting, but most workers are already capable of doing that under the right conditions. Regardless, a queen still needs to mate in order to produce workers.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.
