Well, they can always die from things like attacks, diseases, or mite infestations. They're not invulnerable. All colonies will eventually die.
I currently keep a bunch of Prenolepis imparis queens along with a Myrmica sp. queen.

But yes is you can avoided or treat the above if possible these have what I call the ability to break biology and science calls double cloning.
Not sure if they also accept new healthy queen's which could help if the colony did begin to decline in numbers so it might be worth investigating that. Have fun :)
Research is important before during and even after you have established a colony. There is always time to learn and to listen to others experiences. Live by this and your ants will thrive. Fail to do so and your experience may be brief.
