Difficulties with Ectatomma sp

Hello guys! I live in Brazil and a few months ago I got an Ectatomma sp and quickly she laid her first eggs and soon the first larva was born. But I noticed that she hardly ever laid eggs and that the first larva took almost 2 months to become pupa. And, to my dismay, just over a week after it had become pupa, I noticed that the pupa was open and that there were no ant nearby, perhaps the queen opened the pupa and devoured the ant (???). She is very picky about food and this situation made me worried, I do not know if she is stressed because I only use it 3 times a week (to feed her). Maybe she's not happy with the home? If possible, I would like your help! Thanks in advance ;)

(sorry for my bad english xD)
