My queen ant isn't digging, am I doing something wrong?
It's uh....ant mating season I guess, here, and I caught a newly mated queen ant before she had started a colony, dug her out of one of the small holes they make. This is apparently one of the best ways to get one, other than being lucky enough to find one on the ground. I know she's mated because she had a hole dug and her wings were gone, but for some reason she won't dig a hole in my ant farm....she just sits there. I mean she moves around some, but she's been in it for around a day now and hasn't started digging. I put a few drops of water in it and she went over to it, couldn't tell if she drank any. She still won't dig! Am I doing something wrong?
