Ant Queen

I was out gardening and found an ant queen that just mated. I know nothing about any keeping but I kept her and decided to learn about it. She hasn't laid any eggs yet but should start soon. Hopefully I'll have a ant colony in a few years :cheesy:

Interesting.  Out of curiosity, how do you know it is a mated queen?

Usually when they break off their wings then it is mated. I'm gonna have to wait and see if she lays any eggs to be sure

Really funny because right after I sent that I checked on her and she was laying an egg  :cheesy: the little yellowish thing in her mandibles is an egg

Wow, that is amazing!  What are you keeping her in?
