So, I live in the Kansas City area, and I have become fascinated in the idea of caring for an ant colony. However, I'm not sure what ants are in my area, let alone good ants for beginners. I was wondering if someone could inform me. Thanks!

The best ants for beginners are (for the most part) whatever you find first. ;)

This might help to figure out what is in your area:
