I put my ants into hibernation last week. They're doing fine so far. I'm keeping them in a wine cooler set to a 45F temp. I'll place a mealworm and sugar liquid drop in their test tube portal twice a month.

Nice! Good luck with hibernation, hopefully they'll explode in population next spring.

I'll probably take them out when spring starts

Wow dude. I always see males but no female alates. It’s torture. I caught a Lasius queen today though.

Nice! I'll sell some on the gan, I'll give u a discount since you aren't a complete stranger :lol: . For some wierd reason, I caught a tetramorium queen today as well. And btw, what you think is lasius may be prenolepis, they look very similar. I got three two and one queen setups for the imparis right now. I also found out that there are camponotus semitestaceus and camponotus vicinus right across the street :D
I currently have 17 P. Imparis queens and 1 tetramorium queen in founding.
