Help with hibernating

I recently checked on my hibernating queens and found that 3 were very low on water but all doing fine. I immediately attached new fresh test tubes but they are all refusing to move. It has been about 4 weeks and they are currently in my bed room and not in the basement. Should I move them back down or keep them up where is about 60 so they can move. :D
With all the things ants can do, you wonder, who rules the planet :?

Keeper of:
Solenopsis molesta

i would just let them do their thing. the ants know more about it than we do. I don't know if they need to be in your bedroom to move i bet they could do it in you basement, correct me if i'm wrong.
