This is a journal to track my Lasius cf. Claviger/Umbratus (for sure some type of parasitic Lasius, at least) from some queens that were caught back in August of last year. I managed to get several small containers of Lasius Neoniger brood + workers and introduced them to these parasitic queens back toward the end of April.
It's been a couple months since I had originally introduced them (put queen into small container with them for a few days in the fridge and took them back out). I noticed that some of the ants were carrying around small larvae when I disturbed them so apparently it worked!
I couldn't get a good picture of the queen, but here are some pictures of the colony:
