Ant Hibernation

Hello antkeepers! I have a Myrmica rubra queen that I must hibernate in a month or so. She is semi-claustral and does not have any nanitics, so how should i hibernate her? Thanks!

Give her ample food before hibernation, then during hibernation I would just give her two test tubes taped together one sugar water that you can replace every month and the other water
