There are no GAN farmers in my area. I am having an extremely hard time trying to catch a fertilized queen and was wondering if the anytone knows any programs similar to GAN in the US or any tricks to catch queens. Thank You!

I agree. I almost gave up today after two hours of looking, but then decided, no, I’m going to find a queen!, and I found TWO crematogastor queens!! You just have to keep searching!
x1 Lasius Neoniger
x2 Crematogastor
