I need ants for an upcoming working and I was wondering if anyone had a good suggestion for where to buy dead/dried ants? I would like a reputable North American provider that will ship to or within Canada. I want average local species (I'm not looking for giant tropical specimen types, though neat, not what I need)
I would like only a gram or so, I will buy a few grams if needed but I'm not looking for a large amount.
On the opposite, does anyone have a suggestion for trapping ants in a way that they would still be usable and still amenable to working with me? (stuff like glue traps and poison are right out, can't take them off the glue, they die in the nest if poisoned, not useful). I do need them dead, they need to be vessels, so an ant farm is also right out.
I didn't expect the look I got when I went into town to the local "witch store" and asked for ants... Apparently an odd request.
