Trap jaw queen ant died

Hi there
I have a trap jaw ant colony of around 10-20 workers. However, their queen died :cry: . Does anyone know if the trap jaw ant workers will produce a gamergate or a new queen ant? Thanks!

But if I introduce a new queen ant, and the worker ants do not kill it, does that mean they accepted it since their queen has died? Thanks
