Another GAN farmer in Ohio?

Hi All,

I have been ant keeping for a while and I was wondering, would any other Ohio ant keepers like another GAN farmer in Ohio? I know there are many at the moment, but could Ohio support another one? If you want another Ohio ant keeper tell me. If you are an Ohio ant keeper, shout out to you. I may have been in the hobby a while but I still have a lot to learn, if you have any advice specific to Ohio or the midwest it is appreciated. :D Also if you have had any prior experience with GAN I would love some tips.

I'd just like to say that there might be 7 GAN farmers here in Ohio, but unfortunately only 1 has any available ants and even then they only have one species! I'm not say anything bad about them, I'm only suggesting maybe more would be welcome...
