What if nobody wants my Ants?!?!

I just caught 2 more ant queens today and I already had one. I only can keep one but I am going to first wait to see which one(s) is/are successful. However, because of this, what do I do with the ants that no one will buy? Is there a way to get rid of them safely or can I donate them? PLEASE HELP!!!

What protein do I feed her?

I have a queen, I have had her for 4 weeks now and want to feed her some protein because I am still hopeful she will lay eggs. What should I feed her as protein? Also, how do you prekill the insects you feed to your ants and also, should I freeze or boil them? Please help me.
