I was looking around outside the other day and happened to find two small queen ants. I initially thought they were winter ants but they didn't fit the body shape of that species. Anyway, today when I was checking on them I noticed the characteristic lemon/citronella smell from the queens. So now I have two parasitic queens without a colony for them to parasitize. Which leads me to my offer. I'd like to either sell my queens to someone with a suitable host colony at 10 USD each or possibly buy a host colony from one of you.

Just saying, all they need is brood, not a colony. That will save the life of the other queen, and brood might cost less as well.
