I caught this queen in 2018 early September.

She landed on my car windshield while I was parking.



By time I took the first video on her, winter was approaching. Figuring that laying eggs was unlikely, I placed her in fridge on Octorber 1st.


I tell you what; I lost a lot of queens in my fridge especially when they were lone queens, so I checked on her on Dec 11.



And  finally took her out on Dec 29.



And finally I found that she has 3 eggs on January 9.

Any updates? How is the queen doing?
