I'm interested to see how buying a Pogonomyrmex colony from THA compares with raising one from a queen. Hope they make it safely, good luck!

I have a 4 worker colony I raised from a queen, and I just ordered a 40+ THA colony, so I might have an answer for that soon.

No fair, you cheated by buying more workers than me. But that's ok because i'm going to get me some broods to boost my colony and we will take over as the number one and I'm pretty sure only harvester ant colony in Va-or at least only person in va to be on here.
