What make your nests special? what do they look like?

If you've enjoyed using my expertise and identifications, please do not create undue ecological risk by releasing your ants. The environment which we keep our pet insects is alien and oftentimes unsanitary, so ensure that wild populations stay safe by giving your ants the best care you can manage for the rest of their lives, as we must do with any other pet.
Exotic ants are for those who think that vibrant diversity is something you need to pay money to see. It is illegal to transport live ants across state lines.
Black lives still matter.

? Pictures please, please stop describing your nest as "crazy" or "neat". What we want are quality pictures, info, innovation, and statistics. Please put more thought when posting please.

What makes your design viable? Will ants accept it/thrive in it? You don't just conceive random ideas and think they work before testing it, and sell them. Nests from 117 colonies or Antopia probably weren't released without testing and took ages to design. Finally, why do you feel your nest plan will fetch buyers? Being "strangely shaped" isn't enough. And besides, most nests can connect to others through tubing and whatnot. Just my 2 cents.

The one that I have made is more for solinopsis but I'll add the photos in
Waiting for photos, but what's to stop someone from just copying your design? Do you have a patent for your design?

If you just need money for your license, selling an ant nest design is probably the worst way to go about it. You'd have better luck going around asking neighbors/family/friends if you can do yard work or mow their lawn for some money.

Can you at least post some information regarding your nests, like a quick paragraph or two of information about why your "Nests" are even worth people's time? [sounds kind of harsh, but it's just hard to take any of this serious at all]

Sorry to be so blunt, but it's not a revolutionary design, looks simple. As others have said if you really need money there are other things you can do; if you can't find any work from your family etc then you could do some crowd sourcing work which could earn you quite a bit.
