I had my trap jaw queen in a container with an open top, test tube buried in sand, went away for the weekend and come back to black crazy ants swarmed in the container, trap jaw queen dead. :( So I followed the tracks and found their queen and today Im going to capture her and the brood, they are nesting in an old press board cabinet, I lifted the laminate and there they are.

also no more open top containers
Camponotus floridanus- 1
Paratrechina longicornis- 20+
Dorymurmex bureni- 3
Colobopsis impressa- 2
Pheidole megacephala-1
Tapinoma Melanocephalum- 2

If you surround the container with water you should be okay
