Ants cannot survive without a queen. When the queen dies a new larva must take the queen’s place or the colony will perish with the queen. The death of the colony would not be immediate, however. Ants would “care for the
brood and make tunnels” until the last worker ant perished. More information can be found in the citation field below.
For a little while, yes. Ants will continue working even without a queen ant, and that’s how most companies sell their ant farms. However, because the queen is the only one that reproduces, the ants in an ant farm will live for one to three months before dying, at which point you’ll have to add more ants.
