I'm signing back on to try and get a bit more active in the ant hobby again!

 

I like ants but don't like the outdoors, so I'm hoping getting a bit more invested will help me figure out the right times to head out and find ants for minimum exposure to mosquitos and sunlight  :lol:

 

Right now I've just got the two colonies, both of which are purchases I made instead of ones I founded myself. I think my resolution for 2021 will be to not waste the ant flight months...

And hoping to buy more, let me know if you can ship or are in super north NJ like me!
