Camponotus not accepting proteins

Hello all,
My second camponotus colony has 7 workers and are in a test tube setup still with a small outworld for me to place food in. They havent been accepting protein since coming out of hibernation, but more than willingly accept honey. Is there a reason for this? I figured if theyre hungry they will eat so there is always something available.

They really just stand around in their tube until they sense honey in the outworld.

Thank you!

Do they have larvae?
Keeping:
Tetramorium immigrans * Lasius Neoniger * Lasius Claviger * Messor Aciculatus * Myrmica Rubra * Camponotus Novaeboracensis * Camponotus Turkastanus * Pheidole Pallidula

Yep theres a cluster of eggs/larvae of different sizes that they hang around. none are large, though
