Hello, my son who lives in Wellington NZ is keen to get into ant farming as a hobby. Is there anywhere in NZ you can buy some equipment to get started? Thank you

Hi I'm in Australia (right next to you guys!). I'm so thrilled to hear that nuptial flights are occurring, because that means I'll see them soon too!

Edit: I would have gone to ant keeping depot to get stuff but due to COVID I don't think it's safe. I will see what I can find
