Garden grove to be exact, if anybody knows how to find colonies around town homes I'm open to hearing any input. Anyway, I have seen some of the colonies around the forum and videos on YouTube which brought me to the forum. I'm a beginner to this whole thing and catching ants for fun was what got me started. Now I realize that you need a queen and have yet to found one or a colony. in conclusion, lol i'm glad to join this community :D  deuces!!

Welcome! Well, I definitely do not suggest digging a colony up, the next mating flight occurs some time in January, and the species is Prenolepsis imparis. If you cannot wait until then, you can buy a young colony from someone like dspdrew, although I would suggest watching some tutorials and reading some more first. :)

Welcome Justin. 

 

There is a lot of knowledge on this forum and other forums across the web. I am starting my first colonies this year and have learned a lot from the people in this community. Good luck on your future ant endeavors.

It's great to have another Vietnamese.

Anhzor, Mercutia, and nurbs are all Vietnamese too.

Yes it does, it is run by Mikey, so it takes 24-48 hours to respond.
