Hello, it can normally take a month to a month and half. Solenopsis is a very aggressive and fast growing species so they should take off soon. Has your queen shed her wings? Do you see any eggs? I would try to leave her alone as much as possible so she doesn't potentially eat her eggs. But I would give it time it's been a little less than a month since you've caught her. Hope this helped!
