Will she dig?

So I found this messor sp. Queen today. I already have 3 in a testubes and I wanted to try something different.

So I cleaned out a tic tac container and put some soil in and moistened it so it will hold its form. I then put the queen in and covered Tue top with a piece of acrylic. I also made a cove for the side in case she digs there. Do you think she will dig.?

Very interesting idea! I personally know little to nothing about messor sp. but It would be my guess that she will. Just try to make her as comfortable as possible and she will be more likely to dig in.
Good luck!
