Hey, so I was trying to add an outworld to my setup and I accidently collared a tunnel my queen ant was in. I can see her right now and was wondering in i should do a rescue mission.. will soon if none replies.. Or if I should let her and her workers fix the promlem. only she is stuck as far as i can tell, only 11 workers.

you should let the workers fix it. if you try to rescue the queen you might injure the queen.

If the workers do not fix it in 4 days you should do a rescue mission. To rescue them use a small spoon and slowly scoup out dirt, be very careful you do not collapse any more tunnels if you do tries to rescue them)
My current colonies:
Test_o's colony(camponotus novaeboracensis)
the black hearts(crematogaster cerasi)
the power of war(camponotus novaeborecensis)
the shadow ants(formica subaenescens)
The miniature military (formica neogagates)
