 Ant Farms... Where to get a queen ant?

Hey I was just wondering if anyone knew where to get queen ants so I could build my own ant farm. I’m from Niagara Falls Ontario. If there is anything in the area plz post a comment. How cool would an ant farm be? I know where to get the cages, I’ve seen a few even the gelatin ones but just need to find a Queen. Thanks

Hello,

You can just dig some up you know, and then eventually you’ll find a Queen.

find where there is a good amount of ant holes. (beside a house works great) once a year queen ants leave the nests and they go to new nests (prevents inbreeding) and they take over or make new colonies. these are teh "flying ants" you see. we had ants so bad last year couldnt use side door covered sidewalk and about 3 feet up solid ants all queens. only lasts few days so need to be fast.

they look like other ants only bigger and sometimes have a swollen white belly. carpenter ant queens are really big and jet bllack, red ants are rather small but still alot bigger than other ants.
