in all reality the just need colder temps to support there slowing of the metabolism. just put them wrapped in an insulated but unheated place. like a garage or basement. just somewhere that gets cold but not below freezing mine live on my fount porch it gets really cold here so when it get below 20 in the room i have a heater the brings it up to 30, they should be able to survive expesholy if your cough them locally, just dont let the water freeze. You shouldn't have to feed them, they will just need water and humidity, you can give them a small drop of honey if you want but it is not necessary. just remember that every colony is different and have there own needs, so anyone words are not set in stone facts but more or less what works for them.
