About 24C usually, i can also heat them more, but i don't think they need it

What temperature are you keeping them?
Can high humidity influence on it? I can see some photos on this forum and humidity on them is much less than mine.

I have a Kalotermes flavicollis royal pair since their flights in October of 2020. They laid eggs but those didn't develop for well over many months. Only mid-summer of this year they got their first 4 workers and another bigger batch of eggs. Their development seems to be quite long in my experience. You may have to change up their food, I had to switch from tissue paper to some other toilet paper, which is more rich in cellulose.
Ant enthusiast since 3 years.
I have kept around 40 species of the following genera: Lasius, Formica, Camponotus, Tetramorium, Myrmica, Temnothorax, Messor, Crematogaster, Pheidole, Solenopsis, Lepistiota, Rhytidoponera, Myrmecina.
Most of my collection has all been collected by me throughout Europe.
Getting new species of some new exotics soon!
Glad to always help others if needed
