Should I hibernate my colony in a terrarium?

I have a small colony of myrmica sp, and now that there's snow on the ground here in NJ I realised I should let them hibernate. The problem is, their outworld is a terrarium with springtails, snails, and isopods along with living plants and moss. Should I put the whole setup in a cold room, or would...

Re: Spot the mistakes!

It looks like no one has actually tried to list all of the inaccuracies they could find yet so I'm gonna give it a shot! 1. I have never heard any ant keepers refer to nuptial flights as "flying ant season." 2. It is not something the general public should "brace themselves" for. 3. Unless there is ...

Re: Crazy Idea!

Maybe, if the queen is much bigger than the workers and there aren't any aggressive ants that could invade that area I think it's worth a shot! Although I feel that some workers might start moving the brood to a new location without the queen...

What about you get a bunch of shoeboxes, remove the lid, and coat the insides with Vaseline, and place them all over the place lol.
That actually sounds like a really cool idea! You could probably catch all diffrent kinds of interesting insects that way! I am definitely gonna try it!
