I am completely new to the hobby.
I had made my own farm back when I was a kid - it was a cocktail olive jar inside a peanut butter jar with sand and about 40 or so worker sugar ants. I recall that setup lasted for almost a year. This led to an interest in keeping insects as pets: various stick bugs, tarantulas, and scorpions, all culminating in the straw that broke my mother's back - madagascar hissing cockroaches.
I stumbled upon AntsCanada while surfing YouTube for science videos out of boredom one snow day and now the kids and I are very interestested in raising local native species this summer.
We've already seen one camponotus nuptial flight, and have found some males. But no queens yet.
Any advice is always accepted and would be greatly appreciated.
