What does one do it that situation? Keep them like this until it's late enough in the year to cool them down or? Just wondering because I have not had that happen to me in the middle of summer.
I've looked through different sources, the information is controversial. Basically, there are two possible options:
1) This diapause is normal and you should just wait. I'll keep them at room temperature (which is pretty high - 24-27 C) without putting them into fridge or anything. I'll check them less often and will offer only sugar foods, no protein.
2) Give them an additional hibernation. Feed them lots of sugar, then put them into the fridge, while slowly decreasing the temperature in it. Then keep them hibernating for about 1-2 months.
There is a suggestion that this diapause in the middle of summer occurs when the winter hibernation was too short or the conditions were not right.
The hibernation was 5 months long, but I started it too late in the fall I guess...
I'll stick to the first option as long as I have no idea what putting them into fridge in summer will lead to...
