So, this year I plan on becoming a Gan farmer in my area (west Tennessee). I have yet to see any so think I may be the first if not one of a very few. Can't wait for the new season to start. So excited!

Okay. So my collection of Queens has risen in numbers and just wanted to let everyone know in my state that I will be applying in the GAN project soon. I have a few queens that aren't listed in my signature that I will be selling or possibly willing to trade. I know I I'll have at least 1 maybe 2 Pheidole sp. queens along with a few others I'm trying to ID. If anyone is interested you can send me a PM on here and I'll let you know best I can whatever it is you are asking.

Okay cuz I have many queens with new workers and I'm curious if I apply to be a GAN farmer if anyone would actually be interested in my area? If not then I shall hold off on the GAN project... I have many different species which are not included in my signature which I am going to fix sometime today. I will post when my signature is up-to-date

I am just starting to keep ants and live in Middle TN. I just captured 3 lasius queens and another that I haven’t yet identified. I am brand new to ant keeping and still have a lot to learn. I am thinking of raising a few more types of queens as I am a little late to catch too many more this year it seems.
