Hey new from Edmonton Alberta!

Hey everyone, this is a bit of a change for me as I'm a huge fish fanatic but seen AntsCanada YouTube channel and fell in love with the idea of trying to get my first queen. Amazingly today at the end of work what I believe to be a queen literally started crawling right infront of me. So I managed to catch it however I think it did not make it as she curled up into a ball and hasn't moved in a while now. I really would love to get a queen and watch her as she starts to create her workers but I don't have the slightest idea where to start.

The very best thing you can possibly do is watch Ant's Canada's old videos. They new ones are kind of... dramatic... which some people love and are fine, but AntsCanada's old videos are all useful tutorials. You can learn so much just from that one source, and then if you have any questions come here!
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

So I figured I'd post a pic of the and I found that I believe to be a queen, sadly she did not make it.
