With permits(Atta texana?), definitely not. I think the USDA would be after you.

Also, can your male Odontomachus climb? My species is ruginodis, and the males climb.

I am nowhere close to having a mature colony to have males. I am not even sure if they will be successful in year 2. I almost baked them during last week heatwave.

I'm firmly on talc's side, but it's insanely difficult to find the idea particle size+ it's pulled off the shelves in Canada for cancer reasons

The USDA has much larger fish to fry.
