just wanted to know if we can put a newly catched queen ant in a dirt setup straight away so that they can do their founding process like they do in the wild instead of putting them in a test tube setup.

what do you guys think about this?

thx for the suggestions

Yeah. But you won't get to see her. You gotta make it so she can only dig on the side. You'd have to fit something in the container to make that happen.
