Hey,

I don't really know what you mean with "tube no". It does not really matter if the tubes are long. More important is how wide the tubes diameter on the inside are. Also the queen will probably be able to squeete through most of her tubes.
Doing some proper research is the best way to start an antcolony.

Colonies:
1 - Messor Barbarus
Founding colonies:
2 - Lasius Niger Colony

Never mind about the tube.

When is hibernation period for Lasius Niger and Formica Fusca/Lemani

Is this right? (Lasius Niger)
Eggs to ants 6-8 weeks:
Eggs to larva 10 - 12 days
Larva to pupae 10 - 14 days
Pupae to workers 10 - 24 days

And how long is it for Formica Fusca/Lemani?
