Don't release her. If you don't want her then euthanize her, give her away, or sell her.

Feed them a ton and keep them well heated. The more frequently their fed, the faster they'll grow!

My favorite queens/colony’s:
Pheidole Tysoni, Selonopis Molesta, Brachymyrmex Depilis, Tetramorium Immagrians, Prenolepis Imparis, Pheidole Bicirinata
