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.

I just found a camponotus colony across the street. They are yellow and black, can't wait till the fly!!! Also, when did you plan to take these out of hibernation?
