I was thinking of researching ants as a hobby and I was wondering if and how the Queen can communicate with her colony even if they cannot directly see her. I was thinking of setting up two mazes, one with a "trapped" queen at the end and one with nothing and seeing how long it takes the colony to get there. If it's quicker with the queen there she must be calling them possibly through sound or smell. However, I need to know if this has a chance of working before I set it all up. Thank you, Ben
