I checked on her again today. I have been leaving the ants alone as much as possible hoping they will thrive more if undistrubed. I didn't see her anywhere, but she had built a dirt wall to seperate her from the opening of the tube. I had bought some crickets to feed everyone, and thinking she might be dead, I put 3 small/medium crickets in her outworld to keep them until I need then for the other ant colony. the crickets quickly went into the tube to drink water, and judging from their reactions, she was biting them in the face. they raced out of the tube and she became really active. I ciouldn't see any eggs or brood, so my guess is she is infertile. I'll keep feeding her until she dies on her own.
Another observation I made: I had offered her some honey in a half acorn shell a few weeks ago. Since then it looks like she has eaten, or maybe just chewed off part of the acorn shell and the honey drained into the dirt. now there is a wetspot around the shell where the honey flowed.
