Lasius Umbratus Journal (My first One)

I caught a Lasius Unbratus queen while mowing the lawn. Later, I flipped over some rocks to get some Laisus workers (Niger/Neoniger), and brood (Even some insect that they were farming!). I didn't have a big enough outworld for the introduction process (http://www.formiculture.com/topic/3252-much-ado-about-the-founding-of-lasius-temporary-social-parasites/), so I had to make one out of a bin that I had. The lid that it came with was too loose, so I had to cut a hole in it (leaving a lip for a barrier), and super-glued it down. As of right now, the outworld isn't finished drying, I will post pics when it is. :) :D :)

Oh, yeah, here's the post where I got her identified, just to make sure that she is a Lasius Umbratus:
