Colony Gone Wrong

Hi, I have a small problem. (Skip first paragraph for issue)

I live in Georgia and about 2 weeks ago I went outside to just look under some rocks and check out how insects outside were responding to the cold weather. Along my journey, I found 2 fire ant queens together and for some reason, I thought it was a good idea to get them both and the handful of ants that were with them. I have since fed them and kept cleaning their water. they live in a 10 x 4 x 4-inch plastic container, with the lid flipping up, sort of like a toolbox. I put dirt up to 3 inches high. I was just trying to be funny and mess around with my sister, I didn't fully believe I found 2 fire ant queens.

Here's the issue,
There are actually more ants than when I started and am afraid that if I don't do something soon I'll be in trouble. I don't want to get rid of everything, what should I do? Please, I'm free for any feedback and any other questions.

you could try to sell them on GAN if you do not want them
this is the link to GAN: https://www.AntsCanada.com/queen-ants-for-sale/
or you could make/buy a formicarium to keep them.
you also could release them or ask your parents if you can keep ants as a pet and pretend to "find them" to keep them
Good luck sorting it out.
