Its surprising that their doesnt seem to be any GAN Farmers in australia currently. If you are to be a GAN Farmer in australia plz do it. Many people would love to get into the hobby but are worried about not being able to find a queen. Help the Australian community grow and contribute if u can.

I've recently caught at least 50 queens all of which have begun to lay eggs so I was thinking of becoming a GAN farmer after the ants produce their nanitics, most of them are Aphaenogaster longiceps but hopefully during summer I can start to catch some Camponotus sp queens.

That sounds awsome dude, Not sure if u would sell all 50 but u can make a decent amount of extra cash and help out the community.

I Managed to find a bunch a camponatus queens after a storm a little while ago so i'm all good for now :) TY for the offer. If u have some queens u should probs offer them through the gan project though and not the forum :)

I applied through the GAN project (just now again for the second time). I have only received one email from them when I asked them to change the species. They told me they were going to hold off for now. I have replied to that email several times confirming the species and asking to go ahead, but they have not replied. I reapplied this arvo.
