I'll be honest I think I killed my colony,I was really busy these past weeks and was out on vacation that I neglected my colony dint feed them. Finally today I bought crickets and decided to feed my colony,for my suprise every ant died :(. When I checked on my queen she was alive!
So,is my queen going to survive this tragedy of my part? Is she going to be able to lay eggs again? I put a cricket down and she did eat it.

Where I live is still in the 60s,so I doubt they went on hibernation.

I have pavement ants.

Unlikely, tho not impossible. If she can enclose another worker soon she might just make it. Ants are hardy creatures
