Frequently Asked Questions About Ants

If you can get her to eat and she's still laying, you might be able to salvage things. 'Might' being the operative word. Ants are social insects and feed each other with their social stomachs. Without other ants to feed her, the queen can still eat, but it's not the same. She won't do as well without the help of her workers, and there have been experiments done to see what happens to a lone ant without a colony. They eat the food that's provided, but they're very stressed out and tend to die very quickly. Be prepared for this outcome.
First time ant keeper with 2 formica subsericea queens!
