What's yalls thoughts on digging up a colony and collecting the queen and some workers
It can be done, but it is tricky, difficult, and risky
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.

Keeping Tetramorium immigrans, Tapinoma Sessile

If you could make a journal of them that would be awesome! I’d love to see how a Crematogaster colony grows!
