Escapes camponotus

So i have been using Vaseline and i though it was working but this morning my husband found one of my camponotus workers in the bathroom. They are camponotus pennsylvanicus so they are kinda hard to miss. Then when i was putting the escapee back in the outworld i noticed they were all over the lid to the outworld. What do i do?
(They are in a test tube nest in the outworld because they were too big to keep sealed in the tube)

maybe try baby powder instead. clean off all that vasaline well, and dip a cotton ball in some baby powder and dab it several inches wide.
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.
