was there enough water for her? Is she in a test tube or a established colony? How long has she been in your care?

She may need food if she is not fully claustral.

Sometimes queens just die of mysterious causes that are unpreventable.
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.

Keeping Tetramorium immigrans, Tapinoma Sessile
