Pavement ants inactive

My pavement ants aren't foraging for food and only move if I hit their nest with a stick, they live under a decomposing grasshopper. I gave them fruit but they didn't even try to eat it they just left it alone and didn't step out of their nest. I'm worried about them.

Re: Ant Behavior

Once the ants run out of enough gel the colony rations. You need to feed them or they will die :o

Re: Help please..

Now is a great time to look for queens they're the ones with wings, just make sure it's not a king. Im going to set my ants up in an aquarium once they are older. Make sure to keep them in a jar or test tube until they are a thriving colony. Make sure the aquarium has no water and lots of soil.
