it really depends on who the ant keeper is, some would say it is unethical others would say it isn't. I would try to avoid it unless they would be my dream species or you have like no ant colonies but like i said your choice
keeper of
3 tetremorium queens
2 C. pennsylvanicus
1 C novaeboracensis
1 tapinoma sessile colony
