Find your ants!

Build your kit. Catch your ants. Send them to us!
Anyone can participate! Learn how to create your own sampling kit, sample your backyard or schoolyard, and get our collection back to us so that we can ID the ants and add your species list to the big School of Ants map. Together we'll map ant diversity and species ranges across North America! Click here to get started!
