Hi guys,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Actually, this post was helpful for us. Because of it we have made some adjustments to our GAN Project, just to tighten things up and improve the quality of the GAN Project.

Starting today we are not allowing the sale of Solenopsis invicta (RIFA) anywhere in USA. If people are not sure if they have Solenopsis invicta, we will have them post a photo on the forum to help with an ID of their queen before we put them up on the GAN Project listing.

We will be more careful not to add queens without workers to the GAN Project.

From now on, as well, we will no longer allow the listing of Unidentified Queens. We will have applicants post photos of their ants in the forum ID Centre to at least get a genus name before we list them in the GAN Project.

Feedback like this is super helpful. We also have some cool changes coming up for GAN Farmers and those buying from them soon.

Ant love forever!
Awesome! Can't wait to see the changes!

Oooooooo! Seems as if you're giving us a sneak peak, like on your Mikey Bustos vlog channel. I'm excited!
Ball is life... Ants included.
