Do you have any idea about what species you want? If so, we could probably help you find some in the wild, but we can't help that much if you post something this vague.

You had another post where we told you what to do to purchase them, but I'm glad you have one that is in the proper place now.  

 

Anyways,  as LC3 and I said yesterday, you can ask around on here, check AntsCanada's GAN website, or learn how to catch them yourself.  We have many links that can help you if you would like to read them on the forum.  

 

This is a guide for beginners keeping ants:

This is a guide on how to find and catch queens:

This is a chart to find out when the species around you may become active with queens:

And here is a list for some materials and equipment to make nests and keep them:

Why not introduce yourself too, it's nice to have new members join the forum:
