If you have workers, they should be introduced to an outworld. Use a one inch section of drinking straw wedged between the exit cotton and the side of the tube to act as a tunnel. Then set the whole tube in the outworld. (with a barrier) Supply food in the outworld, not the tube.
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.

For the second question I can’t help you because I don’t hibernate my ants because I’m from The tropical region
