I woke up this morning to find my ant queen and its worker just huddling around each other not moving. Is this because they are sleeping or they are exhausted

To conserve energy, ants don't move if they don't have to. When the colony gets bigger, there will be more ants with more to do.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.
