I am new to Ant Farming and I have been reading about the Lasius neoniger and they will be having their Nuptial Flight soon. I just want to know when i catch these queens do I keep them in test tubes with water and block them in there like you would with other ants? or would you do something else because they tend to wait till spring to lay their first batch of eggs? Any other tips would be great! :D

I would catch mine around labor day. They are fully claustral so keep them in a test tube. She will hibernate throughout the winter so keep her in a test tube setup and don't bother her unless the test tube goes dry and you have to change it.
