Most large Camponotus take around eight weeks from egg to worker.

That’s a fecal dropping. It is the only dropping an ant leaves while in its growing stages.

A while. Could very well be a little under a month. Patience!

Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. -Proverbs 6: 6-8
