It's illegal to transport ants over state lines.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.

No it is illegal to transport insects across the Canada/USA borders, even if the same species is in both areas/countries.
