Colonies failed due to a lack of fresh water supply, lack of food, and mostly due to a stressed-out queen.

Feed your ants into the outworld ONLY.
Don’t expose your ants to direct sunlight or any heat/light source (lamps/bulbs) trying to move them inside the nest quicker or you may harm your queen ant.
