So I'm hibernating my ants in a common fridge, the temperature is correct, but is it ok if the fridge is being used a lot and the ants experience vibrations every few hours?
Do they ignore them as soon as they are frozen in place? Couldn't find any answers to these questions, everyone just mentions that any fridge is the best option for hibernating ants.
From what I've seen, Most people have a separate mini fridge they place them in. If the fridge is being used a lot, I would put them in something that can absorb some of the vibrations. aka: foam, towel, anything.
A fridge by its self makes small vibrations from just running alone. After a while i would guess the ant would get used to it.
