So a Tetramorium sp. E queen that I caught recently got her nanitics. The colony is about five workers with an average pile of brood. I am keeping them in a test tube setup, which I attached to an AntsCanada Test Tube Portal to serve as a miniature outworld. I placed a small square or tinfoil with a drop of honey on it in the outworld. Twelve days later, I checked on them again. Same number of workers and brood, and they haven't touched the honey. They know the outworld is there, as they have a small graveyard with a single dead worker. If there is a reason they are ignoring the food, please let me know. I'm getting worried that they're not eating. Note: this is my very first colony; I'm new to antkeeping.
