Sometimes small colonies go through periods of not needing much.

Then they are foraging when you aren't watching 🙂
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.

This species is known to forage at night, so that's probably when they are foraging.
An ants' strength can be rivaled by few animals compared to relative body size.
