My queen is dead

Oh my, I am sorry you feel down. However, was she really ever 'your' queen? Didn't she have a right to choose where her kingdom would lie? Don't we all?
Do not check the testtube often. It's stress for the Queen. 1-2 times in the month. In the first time you have to be patient. If it was a Camponotus you need much more patience, because they grow slowly.
