New Ant Keeper from Ireland.

Hi!
My name is Ryan and I am about to start my first Lasius Niger colony and although I am currently re-watching the antcanada tutorials on youtube I was kinda hoping for a few tips for looking after my queen in a test tube setup from personal experience. Little things that someone new would not think of even after doing all the reading and videos break downs. The kind of tips and tricks you get only after owning a colony?

Also I would love to know if there are any other ant keepers or lovers who follow AntsCanada who just so happens to.also be Irish or just currently living in Ireland?

Ryan.
Ants love forever❤

No way!! I was thinking the same because I can find no one with the interest. I am from Co. Dublin myself just on the edge before kill and naas 😀

Quick question tho. Have tetramorium flown in your part of our county? I think Rathcoole is going to have them fly sometime this week just by the looks of their activities and nest clearances.
