Hi I'm new to form. I live in Lancaster CA. Looking to purchase a queen or Small Colony for my son and I to enjoy. My father had large farms. For the past yr my son has really grown to love it. We have just been buying the ants from online. Never a queen. Just built my formicaruim. I figured if he stayed interested this long I might as well relive my childhood day loving ants. Any help would be appreciated. Also like I said I'm new to form so I'm reading the rules. Forgive me and correct my mistakes
The ants are already flying this year, you might be able to catch a queen with your son. Look for founding chamber evidence and dig some up if you miss a flight.
