so i have a tetramorium immigrans queen, and she has 3 nanatics, and a couple of larvae and thats it. it seems to me she stopped laying eggs. i have had her nantics for about 5 days. i gave them a small drop of honey, and 1 worker, as well as the queen herself went in to have a drink. so im thinking they need some insects? i dropped in a pre killed fruit fly, and they totally discarded it. what do i do?

They aren't going to forget how to eat. young colonies often disregard protein for a little while. Just keep supplying it and when they need it, they will take it.
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.
