Hey guys, just a quick question. I have three species of ants: Lasius Niger; Camponotus Ligniperdus; Messor Barbarus. I'm planning on hibernating them within the next month but I just wanted to know the most efficient way. Last year I struggled a lot with hibernating but managed to hibernate all 3 of my Lasius colonies and my Campo colony. Now, I have around 80 Lasius queens (planning on freeing some and selling others) and I wanted to know the best way to hibernate them altogether. Also, my Messor Barbarus colonies can only hibernate at 15 degrees Celsius minimum, so my shed here in the UK will be much too cold for them.
Should I triple wrap them in bubble wrap and place them in a box full of polystyrene, then place them in the shed?
As for my Lasius and Campo, should I put them all in one box and wrap them in bubble wrap and polystyrene too?
