My Tetramorium Colony

I’m not a very experienced ant keeper and I need help! I have my tetramorium 4 queen colony in an outworld soil set up. They had abt 100-150 workers so I put them in that set up a few months ago. I don’t see them coming to the surface very often and when I give them food only abt 10 ants show up. Should I be concerned? They burrowed the queen chamber in a place I can see them and the queens seem to be fine. I also see a lot of eggs. This is my first colony I have kept in my life so I need your help! Furthermore, there are a few centipedes in my soil set up. I think they came with the soil. I have managed to kill some of them by hand. How can I terminate all of the centipedes without killing the ants?

Is there anything else I need to know about tetramoriums?

I don't see what is the problem. It's normal, the ants are in the nest most of the time, only some old workers go out to find food.
