Sorry, I didn't finish typing.

I have this 1 and a half-year-old pheidole colony, they were doing well, but yesterday and today the queen has been acting strangely. she won't stay upright, she tries to roll onto her side or back, she also twitches and stretches, they have enough food and water so I'm not sure why she's doing this.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you for the reply, the queen died this morning.
She was probably going to anyway, even if I knew why.
I appreciate the help :)
