Hibernation tips

Hello guys !

I would like to know if I can hibernate my colonies of of formica lemani, lasius niger, lasius flavus queen, solenopsis fugax queens in the fridge
Knowing that ant species have different preferences you think they can hibernate together ?
In my fridge there are 6 degrees
My colonies :
lasius niger x3
formica cunicularia
tetramorium sp x2
myrmica sp (founding)

My dream species -- Polyergus rufescens

that might work, but you've got to slowly cool it down and see what temperature they like.
founding queens:

Early Stage Nests:
x1 Aphenogaster Longiceps
x1 Anonychromyyrma
x1 Phiodole
