Re: Any Gan Farmers in Brooklyn NY

I might sound dumb for asking, but if I am allowed to keep ants where I plan on living, is there a specific way to go about becoming a Global Ant Nursery member? I would be honored to be a member. Assuming I would be allowed to keep ants...

Re: Help! an outbreak of mold?

Hey, if you see this, I needed to update my conclusions about ants and springtails, yes they eat them... But there was a video I saw were AntsCanada had some trap jaw ants, that even though they eat springtails they also were smart enough to farm them. Here is a link to the video: https://youtu.be/l...
