A month ago I put my Myrmica sp. queen into one of my smaller terrariums, with the terrarium serving as an outworld. Rather than staying in the tube, she left and dug a hole in the moss. A week later, the entire terrarium was covered with freshly-dug soil and dead springtail exoskeletons. I was forced to remove my queen from the terrarium when mold began to grow on the dead springtails. Now that my Myrmica queen has her first worker and is in a smaller tube, I kind of want to make another terrarium outworld for her, but I still am concerned that they would move into the terrarium again. Is there a way to keep them from moving into the terrarium?
NOTE: I can not dry out the terrarium (for the plants' and springtails' sake). I can always empty out the terrarium and let them forage in an empty area, but I'd like to give them something natural.
