I don't want to look after them until I know if there is any difference between care or not.

From my experiance Lasius Niger is more resistant to stress then Flavus.
Flavus is more active during the night, So that Means when observing them they get more stress then Lasius niger.

Also Flavus is a bit smaller in size right? (Escape Proof Setup)

Even if you may be technically 2 minutes away, US law states that you cannot transport ants across State boarders, so yes you can only exchange ants within the same State. Our GAN Project enforces this law in all of our transactions.

I would love to buy ants here in Georgia, but I can't seem to find anyone in the GAN project selling them. But I should say that I prefer catching them by hand and dedicating a few hours a day to do so. :D

I second that! I feel sad having to turn away inquiring ant lovers from GA asking to buy ants from neighbouring States. I simply tell them that we cannot sell to them because it is illegal to transport ants across State lines in US, and I assure them that one day someone from GA will sign up to be a GAN Farmer.

I dream of the day every State has at least one GAN Farmer.

Hey Mikey,

I'm living in Guiyang, China. Either with workers or a bunch of brood, I've got:

2x Large Pheidole sp. (maybe P. noda or P. smythiesii)
4x Medium Pheidole sp. (I'm thinking P. indica)
1x Small Pheidole sp. (maybe P. pieli)

3x Crematogaster sp.
8x Nylanderia sp. (I'm thinking N. flavipes)
12x Lasius niger

Think you could help me find some people to take these ants off my hands? I'm well over 18, have proof of address, and a paypal account.

Haha, why so much distrust? How many spammers do you think are trying to unload queen ants? :roll:

Want to join the AntsCanada Team and become a GAN Farmer?

For anyone interested in applying to be an official AntsCanada GAN Farmer (must be 18 yrs or older or must partner with a parent or guardian) to sell queen ants/colonies to local ant lovers, please contact us to inquire about our recruitment process. We are currently looking particularly for individuals from major cities in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, Asia, South America, and Europe. Some restrictions apply and proof of address and age will be required.

http://AntsCanada.com/live-queens-for-sale

Please refer to the AntsCanada web site concerning becoming a GAN FARMER. Please do not post as you did above because it could be taken as trying to sell your ants via the forums and that is strictly prohibited.

Thanks,
