Hello! Im 12 years old and have a few queen ants. I keep them in a detached garage, and it has no air condition, but it has installation do I need to do any thing extra for hibernation? I thank any of you who can help me out! :P

No, ants produce glycerol, which keeps their blood from freezing. Therefore they can survive temperatures well below 0.

Soooo the insulation in the walls won't affect the ants hibernation schedule?
