Not required, this species is fully claustral.

An ants' strength can be rivaled by few animals compared to relative body size.

Days equal to the number of evil deeds in your lifetime divided by the number of good deeds, times 7. :lol:

Depends. Most Carpenter ant queens lay eggs in 1-2 weeks after capture. Just give her some time.

Whatever that queen is, she isn't parasitic nor semi-claustral, so the normal test tube setup will be fine. Best to make your own ID threads, though.
