Agreed. I was just saying they will if they have to.

yeah, but I start my queens with substrate so they don't have to risk it


There is a important time for everything, important place for everyone, an important person for everybody, and an important ant for each and every ant keeper and myrmecologist alike

You should start and journal. Also, most ants are that way (because then they don't have to worry about spinning there cocoons and if they have enough resources to).

Um, they died in hibernation :(

Over the past couple years, I think we've established that the only ants that can survive a full on South Dakota winter in a garage are Camponotus

Do you have to hibernate this species, and is one missed hibernation still okay?

I think this is a species that requires hibernation every year, but if not they do need it at least the first year. They generally won't lay until after hibernations. The posts above made that quite clear as well. Just be careful about it.
