I’m a beginner looking for someone in or near Indiana to buy a queen to start my first colony.

If you're interested in buying ant queens or colonies in the USA then the seller has to be from the same state. Unless you have a permit or something along those lines. If you were willing to wait a few months and had the time to search for them, you could try to catch a queen during a nuptial flight.


Otherwise, it may help to know what type of species of ant you were looking to get. Also from my limited experience you should try to get a colony, not just a queen. Since there is no guarantee that a queen will successfully found a colony. Or just be aware that the queen you buy may not be fertile or may die before successfully founding.

There's a few of us on here from Indiana that may be willing to sell, just give it a few months for us to wake up our ants fully/ catch queens and for them to have their first workers.
