Brachymyrmex Hibernation

Hi. I have been hibernating my brachymyrmex depilis for a month in a fridge. I’ve heard that they only hibernate for a short time. I was wondering if I could pull her at a month and a half and she would start laying eggs. Or will she have not hibernated for long enough?

Ant Hibernation

There are many ants around me in Dallas TX, I'm wondering if some of these species hibernate or not. Brachymyrmex or Lasius?

Queen ID

Found this queen mating in my Texas backyard. Dark Red head and thorax with black and yellow gaster. I'm thinking lasius neoniger or brachymyrmex depilis. Thoughts?
