Even when I only turn the test tube like 30 degrees she manages to slip when she is not on the cotton itself, however the workers hang on just fine.

I notice my Pheidole queens (which look extremely like Tetramorium queens) couldn't grip very well either. I've been told Camponotus also have trouble gripping. So it just depends on species.
