My colony is still in hibernation. I don't know if I should be feeding them or not though.
They generally wont accept food during hibernation.
Yeah the thing is, the GAN farmer I bought them from told me to feed them twice a month during hibernation.

Re: YsTheAnt's Camponotus Modoc Journal

Dude that's awesome. I'm surprised they are so active when they would still be hibernating in the wild at this time.

He should make a different channel for that if he wanted to keep termites since it is called "AntsaCanada"

Re: Jadeninja9's Camponotus hyatti Journal

I put my ants into hibernation last week. They're doing fine so far. I'm keeping them in a wine cooler set to a 45F temp. I'll place a mealworm and sugar liquid drop in their test tube portal twice a month.

Re: Jadeninja9's Camponotus hyatti Journal

I was wondering when those would be on the gan Project... Do you have any idea why they aren't growing? My theory is that even though ants in the Bay Area don't hibernate, brood development still stops and energy is conserved for the queen to survive the cooler, but not freezing, weather. Because I...

That means we won't have anymore updates :(

Yep lol
Maybe I'll create a journal for my Lasius alienus queens. Though all the updates would just be me saying "Just checked on my queens, the eggs still haven't developed."

Re: Hibernation in California Bay Area

Tetramorium doesn't really need hibernation as they are native to tropics/subtropical regions where they don't need to hibernate. Also, ants in the bay area don't hibernate, as it stays warm enough for ants to not hibernate. They may slow down though, but they can be kept at room temperature and do...
