URGENT URGENT URGENT PLEASE HELP

Myrmica Rubra colony started 23/07/2020

Major problem number 1. I may have over watered their sand in the outworld, then to fix said problem put more sand in to absorb it, feels hard now, can they deal with this until it dries out? If not what can I do going forward to help them? I don't feel confident in handling them any so I don't think getting them out to manually dry it is an option. Please help! :cry: :oops:

Just don't water the sand in the outworld. It needs to feel not nest-like, else they may consider expanding their nest there.

Water evaporates on its own, sand isnt good at holding onto it or absorbing it, so just leave it to dry out, if you keep adding more like mentioned ants will move in, and you also increase the time it will take for all the excess to evaporate, unless its a proper visible layer you could use some thick kitchen roll it will pull some water out, but I don't think its that much to worry about.
