In Late September,I Stumbled Across A Manhole That Black Crazy Ants(P.Longhicornus)Were Moving Out Of.I Sat Waiting Until I Noticed A 6 Inch Tall Brood Pile And Carefully Poked It.As Expected,The Colony Moved Back Into The Manhole.I Managed To Grab 3 Larvae,And Female Getting *Hint Hint*By A Male,And 9 Minors/Majors.I Put Them In A Humid Dirt Setup.Everything Went Fine-They Had A Nice Brood Pile,And After 2 Days,I Gave Them Worm With A Side Of Honey.It Was Such A Favorite That The Queen Came For A Sip.They Had 4 Repletes.
Today,October 15th,2017 I Checked Up And Noticed Something-There Was Only Five Workers And A Queen-3 Workers Were Curled Up.You Think They Can Make It?They Have 2 Pupae Right Now-One Is A Male And Another Is A Major.Also What I Mean By "Will They Make It"Is Whether They Will Live Or Die Within 7 Days..

Does there nest setup resemble their environment in which you found them?
Maybe you could make a terrarium for them to live in.
