Winter Ants and Estivation?

I see there's a lot of tips on how to care for and hibernate your nest, but Winter Ants, False Honeypot Ants, prenolepis imparis, whatever you want to call them, don't hibernate in the 'regular' way. Because these guys go through estivation in the summer, how do you care for that instead? I haven't found any tips or anything of the like about this yet, and I'm looking into getting my own colony of these guys.

To anyone that knows, your help would be greatly appreciated!
