Re: New ant keeper help please

Ants even in the summer will seal there test tubes with substrate to keep micro-winds out. If you are in a temperate zone you should be hibernating them anyway. The dirt should not be a problem unless they lock them selves from the outworld.

Re: Newbie

If the temperatures get below 0 Celsius you should look into camponotus if you can find them because they have anti-freeze in their Hemolyph (blood) that might help. Other that that I think that the garage would be the perfect place to keep ants.
