I have been watching ant farm videos a lot lately and would love to start one of my own. I live in Washington state .... is it possible to find suitable ants for a farm here? When and where should I look? Am I able to set them up in an aquarium? I really want to do this right so that I do not accidentally kill the ants.

Now is a great time to look for queens they're the ones with wings, just make sure it's not a king. Im going to set my ants up in an aquarium once they are older. Make sure to keep them in a jar or test tube until they are a thriving colony. Make sure the aquarium has no water and lots of soil.
