If she does not move at all she could be semi- clastural ( did not spell that right :lol: ) which means she needs to forage for food. She might be hungry. You could try giving her the tiniest drop of honey on a bit of foil. :D

It might.. as long as it is only a few degrees warmer than 72(room temp). This things can happen in ant keeping, I hope you caught more than just one queen because about 4 in 10 turn out to be infertile or die for some reason. It is how it goes. Good luck! :)

Go to a florist and ask for some water picks, they are little test tubes that can be filled with water to put on the stems of flowers. :D
