They look like formica queens to me but im not 100% Any chance we could do some trading or purchasing?
of course we can! once i get test tubes from the mail, and the eggs hatch into healthy workers they will be ready!

i tried signing up to be a gan farmer but it asks me this

Proof of Identification (indicating your address)

so idk what that means
I didnt know if u know but u need to be 18 to be a GAN farmer and proof of residence is just to ensure that you are not lying about where you live. Do you not know your own address?
ik where i live and ik i talked about it with my parents, but idk what proof i need to show, like a picture of my house?
yay for ants!

keeping
6x lasius niger/americanus

12x tetramorium immigrans

1x formica podzolica

searching for
camponotus sp

Yeah they have to make sure no invasive ant stuff happens. Which part of richmond did u find your queens? I think im going to go search there instead. Before i was going down the railway trail but i didnt find much these past few weeks.

Although they are super cool i dont think we have any pheidole ants native to BC. I might be wrong but I'm quite sure.there is a website that shows all nuptial flights for your area and month its quite handy.
Here (it shows all sighting for the area you put in)
