So after some research I found many articles about Oleic Acid, the ant death pheromone. The issue is no one really knows the specifics of when and how it's released. There have been study's that show Oleic Acid is released two days after when an ant dies of natural causes, but when an ant is killed violently and suddenly, it could possible be released then, or a different pheromone is released.

They moved into their new test tube. I Saw tgat they like to be at the drier end of the test tube probably because theres already enough humidity in the air. Some ants are still in the old test tube they'll surely move out soon. I gave them lichi juice but they didn't like it. I also saw that they hate the smell of toothpaste! I just put some on the syringe and took it closer one of the ant and saw that instead of completely biting, spraying acid and stridulating they just walked away without even climbing the syringe. Now i can use some toothpaste to do stuff in which ants are possibly able to climb on me( i used mint tooth paste but i think flavoured ones wont work)

Many insects hate the smell of mint so that actually makes sense.
