I found a camponotus truncatus queen two week ago. But she still didn't have any egg. What can ı do.

Some ants take quite some time - Messor queens are know to sometimes take 4 months to start laying eggs. Also since she is a late catch she might decide to not lay eggs until after hibernation. Worst case scenario would be an unmated queen but I'd keep her and wait.
One of my Solenopsis fugax queens waited for 6 months before she decided to lay eggs.

Thanks a lot she dropped her wings so I am sure she mated. Also I have a camponotus piceus queen she didn't lay egg too. So only solution is waiting I think.
