Is it fine if I keep my ants outside for hibernation? It is the only way I can hibernate them. Thanks!

It is nor recommended. Ants in the wild are underground where it doesn't get as cold. So just sitting outside will kill them from freezing temps. Also, I noticed that you posted this several times. Please not that that is considered spam and could get you kicked off the forum. :? So, anyways, just a heads up in case you didn't know :)
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.
