Update 6/16/2015:

 

I fed them yesterday. Here is a picture:

They've also got two pupae!

 

On another note, I re-measured both this queen and my Camponotus sp. 2 queen, and I think they are the same species. The coloration is identical, the size is only 1 mm off and the workers are the same size. Here is a comparison:

Update 6/18/2015:

I just both of these colonies wingless fruit files. I saw a worker from one of the colonies roll the body (except for the head), into a meatball. She then gave this meatball to a larva, and moved it to different larvae every few minutes.
