Found this gal about a week or so ago. She had already removed her wings and she already has produced some eggs! Can you help me ID her? I am hoping she is camponotus.

Approx 15mm in length.

She is my first queen. Any tips for a newbie on care and how long I should wait before moving her into a bigger setup?

It is Camponotus, however I am not familiar with the species.

It looks like a Camponotus, but I couldn't really find a match for it species wise. It could be a subspecies of Camponotus pennsylvanicus??
