Youtube randomly recommended some ant videos to me and after a few months of watching a few more channels, I've decided to start my first ant farm! I'm 28 male and live in Dallas Texas- the greatest country on Earth (i chose my words carefully). So excited to be here!
I received water picks from my local Kroger. Its August and I've captured 2 very red queen ants (assuming Red imported Fire ants) and 1 much smaller black queen ant (debating if its a pavement ant or odorous ant). I'm still learning Latin names .
Currently i have them individually in a cottonball test tube (water pick) set up. I will have pictures and updates in a month.
