Can I use an Antkit nest for Solenopsis fugax? I‘m scared they‘ll squeeze through the airholes. I want to give my colony a new nest after hibernation because they’re growing pretty quickly. The sawtooth adapter will be glued to the nest with reusable glue aka. I can remove it without disturbing the ants.

I have put them away in a cupboard, but it is pretty chilly! Definitely not freezing (its in the house) but it is cold.
Can it be too cold, assuming it never freezes?
