I'm brand new to this forum and to the hobby, but I figured it would be the right place to come to make this kind of request.
I live in Broome County, New York (I would rather not give my exact location within the county) and I am looking to acquire a native species of ant for a beginner like myself!
I haven't had any luck finding any myself, so I figured I'd reach out and see who/what I can find. I'm hoping to maybe get my hands on a queen with some or no brood so that I may experience the entire process myself.
Thank you all so much for any help/pointers you can provide
