So my mom has gotten sick of the ants in the refrigerator and has elected to let me get a mini fridge for hibernation purposes. Of the couple I found that would work, one was a mini fridge with a max temp. of 39°F (3.9°C) and the other was a wine cooler with a minimum temp. of 41°F (5°C). Obviously if I went with the fridge with lower temperature I would have to use the higher end of its range since I don't want to freeze the ants, and if I went with the warmer wine cooler I would have to use the lower end of it's range since I want the ants to hibernate, not just be sluggish. Either way, the temperature would be near 40°F (4.4°C). The advantage the wine cooler might have is that I could adjust the temperature slowly up or down when putting ants in or out of hibernation. But what do y'all think? Slightly warmer side of 40°F (4.4°C) or the colder side?
