As the subject states I would really like to adopt a queen Pogonomyrmex barbatus/occidentalis. I would prefer the queen only or maybe a queen and a few workers. I sent my info through the GAN site but have not received a response yet. Sorry if I'm being over eager. My son and I are excited to start our new ant family. :)

Regards,

Just wait till you see an opportunity in the GAN project to purchase a queen. Any attempts to purchase queens outside of the gan project is frowned upon here. :D

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

Oh I am trying to buy one through GAN. I dont understand how to contact the seller. I received an email with a copy and paste from the GAN site. But still dont know how to contact the seller and actually purchase the queen. I was kind of hoping that I could contact the seller this way. But apparently not.

Email them back and tell them which GAN farmer you wish to purchase from

They will then provide you with contact details to allow you to directly contact the GAN farmer
