So I am waiting for spring so I can start as Manny colonies as I can but I was wondering how much does a well started colony go for.

It really depends on the species and how many workers. My experience is between $25-$400.
Most times it's in the $30-$60 range unless your colony is massive or super rare etc.

Omg thats awesome I just wanted to know thank u im thinking if I can find a lot of queens this summer I could raise them to say 25-50 workers depending on species and a nice pile of babies and sell them to help with making my own set ups and such and does anybody know a good ant spices in Pennsylvania that goes for good price so I can seek them out I wanted to attempt citronella ants so I could keep a colony butt there hard to start cause obvious reasons I was think what if I could offer them after they took over a host colony and help the people I would sell them too with a simple set up that would allow root aphids to do well so the colony does well also hoping to start a bunch of carpenter ants for a year or so then sell the I halve a big nest out side my house along with another off in the woods that ive seen the alates and I halve a lot of pavement ants all over the place and I've seen queens before so hopefully I do well come spring #AntLoveForever
