Existential crisis

So, I saw one of my ants escape so, I carefully picked her up with my hands, I then put her back in her outworld. She was fine but she ran towards the nest, I thought she was going back home. then later half of the colony rushed out of the nest and started freaking out. It happens frequently with my ants, so back to anarchy! :shock:

hm. I flick escaped ants into the outworld all the time. this never happens.
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.
