Default What happens to ants separated from the nest?



I recycle my food waste in a little bin that is crawling with ants. Every few days I take it to the back of the garden and empty it into the composting bin and notice lots of ants on the food I tip in. What happens to those separated from the nest? Do they set up a new colony as there's a fair few of them? But no queen...
