Help with hibernating

I recently checked on my hibernating queens and found that 3 were very low on water but all doing fine. I immediately attached new fresh test tubes but they are all refusing to move. It has been about 4 weeks and they are currently in my bed room and not in the basement. Should I move them back down...

Re: Winter Queen Hunting?

Yeah my bet is that will not work, your best hope is catching a Prenolepis imparius which fly pretty early. :D

Re: Questions about a Cigar Box

I have kept ants in test tubes in them before. But opening it up just to check on one queen still disturbs all the others. My most resent test tube storage is a wood log with a bunch of drilled holes that i sit the tubes in. :D
