I have recently collected a c. herculeanus(edit: C. Chromaiodes) from the inside of a rock(i have collected almost all brood and vast majority of workers) but they are keeping their dead/trash(I mistakenly found some ants without a queen or brood a few inches away from their rock and then those ants were killed and accounts for 2-3 deaths but there are around 5 total dead ) inside of the nest. this has been going on for 3-4 days. Will I have to move them out of the nest and get a new nest, will they eventually move it all out or is there something I can do? There outworld has no sand or dirt idk if that matters or not.
