Now, what I'm hoping is that they've burrowed deep somewhere to hibernate. However, I've looked for them as much as possible without disturbing the soil, and they seem to have vanished. Eggs, queen, workers, everything...poof! There's been no escapes that I've seen, and they've been eating and drinking until two days ago. I'm pretty sure they're hibernating, but I can't think where. Anyone else know of spontaneous ant disappearances?
