I just found a queen wandering around on surface which I thought that it was trying to find a new colony to invade so I caught her. I lifted a stone where there is always Lasius neoniger so I took 3 workers and some pupa then put it all in one test tube setup and now they are in the freezer to calm them. Hopefully all plans out successfully! Pictures will be if it works.

Already I messed up, stayed in the freezer too long and they died. :(

Never freeze.  Refrigerator only.
