ant farms do not provide the right temps, humidity, and other factors for queens to live. of course, if you just want to keep ants, then they will work just fine. hopefully, everyone including myself are not going too much over your head for you! if you just want ants, try either amazon for pogonomyrmex(harvester ants) or someone in your state that has a big colony. remember, though, in these setups, the ants will die eventually. if you want a queen, you will need to buy something different and more expensive, which you may not want to do. if you are looking for easy to keep queens, tetramorium(pavement ants) are easy to keep. hopefully that helps!
I am brand new to this. I saw that I needed to put my location in my profile to conduct sales on the forum...I did that.
So, now who would like to guide me on purchasing ants for my sons ant jungle.
What is the best for a 8 year old? Where can I buy them?
also, great for putting your location in your profile! not many people do that without us telling them to!

Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. -Proverbs 6: 6-8
