I live in Atlanta and it finally dropped below freezing last night and I was wondering should I hibernate my pheidole and temothorax or not, they're fairly small and so I don't know if that makes a difference, thanks in advance.

If you are no longer seeing ants outside than yes, you should hibernate them.
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

If they're not used to hibernating, then no. There's a chance that they won't make it.
