She is able to communicate with the colony, no matter the distance, as long as she is alive. Scientists tend to credit this behavior to pheromones: complex chemicals which are used to communicate using the sense of smell. However, some doubt pheromones can explain the sophisticated communication over far distances.
Experiments with termites have proven they continue communicating even when separated by steel plates. These plates would block any physical transmission of pheromones. Researchers are now looking for evidence of these abilities in humans.
