This is my first post in this journal!

Today while i was in the restroom I found a Monomorium viridum! She may not be that much to look at, but it was really exciting to me to see the first ant of the year! And the first ant sync I became interested in ant keeping!
Congrats! Good luck!

I don't see this process talked about in too much detail and I'm always very over-worried about doing things right. It's almost time to take my ants out of hibernati...
