I've heard of it working without water and i think the worker just gets accepted in the colony for some reason. as for the vinegar i do agree that it is probably not a healthy thing for the ant

she might make it on her own but yes a worker would help. i only know of one carpenter ant nest which is in a alive oak tree and in my neighbors house so i don't think they would let me cut down this 50-100 year old tree for 10 ant pupae. but then thinking about it i remember that in mikeys ant video about how to get ants out of your house he said that vinegar gets rid of ant pharamone. so would dumping a worker ant in vinegar for 10 minuets get rid of it's colony scent? and even if it does would the worker remember it and still kill my queen? so many questions. and i know that water would not work. that would mean every time it rains and a nest floods the colony would disband
I have heard that cold disintegrates an ant's pheromone. So you could now have several workers in with the queen.

hmm. I've heard of people putting parasite queens in the cold with workers. this won't get rid of pharamones but will just keep the workers sluggish enough that the queen will have time to assimilate into the colony

AntsCanada himself actually said that.
