How can i start an Indian jumping ant colony

I want to start an Indian jumping ant colony I sometimes see workers on the wall (when I am not searching for them, they do not appear when I am searching for them) and I don't know where is their nest. So i want to know when are their nuptial flights or should I dig the colony? I live in north east India.

Can you provide us with the scientific name of the ants you are looking for.? A picture from internet might help as well. Don't really know what Indian jumping ants are. Plus this is horrible to dig down a wild colony of ants and I think no body would agree to that, at least here on the forum.

It is a type of bull ants that is present in India. It is the only bull ants that is present other than in Australia.
It's pretty sought out genius as they are pretty different from other ants.

Check this Youtube channel ants Australia which has a very informative vedio about bull ants.

It is also known as jumping Jack ants.

It is semi clustrial specious that can have a gamer gate.
