Yard work

So the wife wanted me to finally mow the yard (Yey me right?) Welp ..... the front of my house we have a nice slope with a ton of rocks ... I thought it would be cool to do some hunting after im done my mowing ....... the 2nd rock I over turn ... there is A MILLION ANTS ....... so I watch what they do and they have like 15 queens with all these ants just going crazy .... It was so cool to watch .....


So with that being said ...



Should I go back outside and catch a few of those queens so the colony can still survive .... or should I mind my own business and maybe catch one when they go into nuptial (which Im not good at IDing so I really have no idea)
