Hello to whoever reads this! 😃 I’m looking to start my own ant farm and I need some help. I’ve been looking for queen ants around my neighborhood in El Paso, Texas but can only find established ant colonies. Could anyone possibly help me better track these elusive queens?

i would just look every day. go on walks and look at the sidewalks. at those well established colonies you can check for alates at the entrances. if you find some you know a nuptial flight is coming.
