Hi everyone.

My name is Will. My journey started after one of my kids found the AntsCanada YT channel. Ever since then, we have managed to get our hands on a starter colony of Pheidole sp., a couple queens of Camponotus consobrinus, and some (around 7) smaller queens which I'm yet to identify as they were just caught a couple hours ago.

This has been a great hobby that I share with my kids so far. Definitely gets them off their tablets and countless electronics just to go for a walk each day (I know nuptial flights aren't daily but they always want to go "Ant-Hunting" as soon as I get home from work. I'm sure my neighbours think we're all nuts).

Anyway, I thought I'd start an account here so I can get more information and hopefully expand on our little collection.
