They should, give them some time. Or they might not like it.

You could always give your ants the things they are supposed to eat.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.

Technically, I have seen huge gathering of Trap-Jaw + Big-Headed Ants scavenging a large lizard before.
As such, I presume that once an ant colony reaches a certain size, they will hunt after bigger prey.
