I cant see the queen most of the time but the colony is not grow nor is there any signs of growth like pupa and such. For instance, she might not lay a lot of eggs at first as a way to protect herself. Well I found her under a rock. but they are in a warm room and i saw one of them mate before i got her. I dont know what kind they are but they are medium sized and all black with very faint shiny stripes on the abdoman. my previous queen ants would usually lay their eggs between 1-3 days, but I am not very sure with this species. I try not to disturb any queens more than once every two days. So I'd eliminate that as one of the possibilities. Why is my queen not doing her job?

Ant societies have division of labour, communication between individuals, and an ability to solve complex problems. The ants like to come out and sit on the side of the encloser by the entrance of they're tunnels.
