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.

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.
