::I was searching on harvester ants due to some colonies I have. I was wondering what you use to feed them since last year I put some oatmeal flakes (as I feed the goldfish in livestock tanks) down near one of the beds to feed them and this year they are gone. I also have a lot of fire ants around and not sure what drove them out or killed the bed. I still have one known bed and don't want them harmed.
::I also live in Texas and miss our horned toads that use to live around here. I was wondering what it takes to get a permit or raise them in a natural setting (4 acreas). Anyone that can direct me to a site to learn more about this in Texas I'd appreciate it.
::Thanks for any help you can give.

::Contact Texas Parks and Wildlife for the permits and provide them with a proposal for your idea. We need more folks who are willing to establish conservation areas to protect species that are threatened or endangered. The economics are crucial to show that protecting natural resources are very beneficial. The fire ants need to be dealt with and Texas Parks and Wildlife can help in that area also. Lester G.

I live in Austin and am interested in doing this as well. Problem is that I have been unable to find an ant colony.
I am hoping you are close by? Maybe we can team up?
Please don't tell me you are in Amarillo or something!
