So people are wondering, "why isn't there much ant awareness"? I think that if even some science teachers had a colony of ants in their classrooms that the awareness level might just jump to a satisfactory level! However, I'm a terrible salesman so I have certain self doubts particularly in my persuasion department. What are some key notes to mention in conversation with academic institutions? How will students benefit having ants in the classroom? I will of course offer to help with the collection of a queen and to help with any colony maintenance, i.e. overwintering and moving colonies to larger formicaria as needed. I guess the last question I will ask is this. Is it worth it? I believe it is. What do you all think?
