That is unfortunate. I hope that you can catch more queens later. I did not have a lot of colonies, but I think that this is relatively common. Many queens do not manage to found colonies, and therefore it is recommended to catch several.

Sorry for your loss.

Dude what you found was amazing. If I were you I’d raise the parasites instead of the Camponotus queen. Who knows what you found and what they will grow into.
Tetramorium immigrans * Lasius Neoniger * Lasius Claviger * Messor Aciculatus * Myrmica Rubra * Camponotus Novaeboracensis * Camponotus Turkastanus * Pheidole Pallidula
