Maybe the queen ant died.

Quote:Ant colonies can be long-lived. The queens can live for up to 30 years, and workers live from 1 to 3 years. Males, however, are more transitory, being quite short-lived and surviving for only a few weeks.[60] Ant queens are estimated to live 100 times as long as solitary insects of a similar size.[61]
