Unidentified any colony in phoenix, az

Have an unidentified any colony in medium flower pot. Would love to relocate and keep but can't afford equipment. If anyone wants them and can transfer them out it would be great since I don't want to kill them or the plant. My pictures are too large but can send them if requested.

You can put them in a tubaware container and that will work for now. Just sprinkle some substrate and then relocate them. If you want to sell them or give them away, there is the GAN project that you can join. Also for Identification you will need to show pictures, size, color and in this case size of colony will help

Also if you want to keep the ants from escaping the container mix some rubbing alcohol and babypowder and then apply a barrier around the rim of it. Should keep them from climbing out. :)

Maybe throw in some honey to get as many of the workers as possible.
