Never feed inside the tube, even for semi claustral queens. Use a one inch section of drinking straw wedged between the exit cotton and the side of the tube. This will create a cozy tunnel for her. Then make sure the tube is covered snugly in either paper (black or red) or red photography "paper" (filament) Then set the whole thing in the outworld. Provide sugar water or diluted honey, fruit juice, anything sweet that isn't too thick, and protein preferably fruit flies in the outworld, not the tube. Let her forage,and do not disturb the tube for a week or two.

Beautiful queen btw :)
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.
