You should actually keep them in a separate test tube. See if the mites kill the alates or they don't do anything. Don't release them as they have mites which could kill wild ants

Also i have a YouTube channel. Its not ant based but i really want 500 subscribers to get community tab so pls sub :D

I'll try keeping some in a seperate test tube along with some workers for quarentine and maybe preserve some in alcohol.
