what species? If they are semi claustral, then yes. Fully clasutral, no. You don't feed fully claustral queens until their first workers "hatch"
Proverbs 6:6-8

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.
