Hello everyone! Super interested in starting my own ant colony after seeing some videos online. Applied to purchase a Queen on AntsCanada and been looking around my area to find my own queens. Might be a bit too late for the Ohio area but I am hopeful some will come my way!

Thanks for the info! Going to be waiting for the next rainfall and hoping to get lucky the day after! Any recommended areas to search? Around parks? Parking lots?
