Do I need to put my ants in the fridge this winter

I’m in south FL and it stays pretty hot here year round so do I need to put my new colony of camponotus floridanus in the fridge for any amount of time?

Are these eggs okay

Sorry for only having one photo. This ant is a Solenopsis Invicta. I just want to make sure her eggs are still looking good. She laid these eggs I think it's been either 4 or 5 weeks ago. They appeared to be growing for a while. Now they just seem to be getting darker yellow though. Once again sorry...

Two new queens. Not sure if they're the same species

Okay, so I'm fairly certain both of these ants are Solenopsis Invicta. But I'm new to the hobby and it's throwing me for a loop. The one on the cotton ball is the one I'm like 100% sure is a Solenopsis Invicta but the one on the paper is about 1 maybe 2 MM larger than the other and has slightly diff...

Re: Is this a queen or a hostage worker for the last two day

I'm assuming Queen and not a worker, or Is it wrong to assume?

Also Is the type of ant that fast when laying its first batch of eggs? Or does she need a little food? I can't remember what that's called. All she has right now is water in a cotton ball in a dark tube lol
