I dug up a queen and her nest in my garden. How would I care for her because she has already started a colony?

If you can collect some of her workers for her that would be ideal. If not, you will have to feed her in her test tube.
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.
