(This post will be edited for every change that happens)

These are my current ant colonies I have up for sale, I am open to trades! PM me if you are interested, ask questions in this thread. I will ship, customer pays shipping, otherwise you must be able to drive to Moreno valley, or within a 10 mile radius of it, I normally meet at a designated swap zone near the town police station, so that no "funny business" will be able to take place.

I ship flatrate USPS which is currently 7.90$ for most sales (price increases if it is a large order that won't fit in the small flat rate box).

Edited: i acquired new queens recently and they are currently founding, hoping for a good turnout but should definetely have some veromessor pergandei, camponotus clarithorax, maybe a Camponotus vicinus/sansabeansus (not sure on ID yet) and also possibly some dorymyrmex insanus coming in the next month or two. Will be actively hunting for more until the end of season so keep an eye out for species you want!

Edited: adjusted prices further, lowered queen prices and raised the eventual colony prices, may not be final. They mostly have eggs and by next week they should be getting their first larvae, already had a dozen more or less die on me (mostly winged or injured), so i am glad i collected some extras last minute. Camponotus all have eggs , the veromessor have small larvae, will update this with pricing when nanitics are imminant. Updates will happen if i catch anything new, so look out for species you want, pogonomyrmex flights should happen in a few more weeks and I'm in a prime spot for those, veromessor andrei should fly around the same time or maybe a little later, will be heading out to the desert at least once this summer so hopefully i can get some Myrmecocystus and/or some other cool desert ants lioe novomessor, keep your eyes peeled people.
