The solution I have found is to always keep the front end of the tube (The one you can open to add food) slightly tilted. Just a little bit of tilt prevents the whole circumstance.
Good luck in the future, hope you can learn from my mistakes. Ant raising is an active science. Gotta do what works best for them.

To catch queens I'd recommend feather weight tweezers.
