Finding ant supply in my country

Hey there :-)
I live in Israel, I have a small colony composed only from a queen and five workers.
they haven't grown in size a long time and the workers are getting 7 months old.
I live in Israel and I have no idea where to find or buy springtails, and where to buy meal worms.
I tried Amazon but they don't deliver springtails to Israel.
Are there any Israeli ant keepers here who bought springtails and meal worms and can help out a fellow ant keeper?
message me please.

Pet shops can sometimes sell bugs. I think they are usually marketed as feeder insects and are normally given to reptiles or frogs.
