Not to sound mean but if you can't afford the hobby then you shouldn't do it. Even though they're "just insects" it's still not fair to have them if you can't afford their care. Basic ant keeping is incredibly cheap though. You can just capture a queen and keep her in a test tube (that's like £2)

Thanks guys for the help I'll consider the test tube setup and can't wait till late spring and early summer to catch my camponotus queens, which is when we have spring and summer. So it's ant season by you guys from what I know, so best of luck with those queens :-)
