Nah, too lazy and I don’t really care. They drink the extra nectar drops on my desk, and eat the junk and put in a tub that was their old nest, so its a win-win. Plus, I need to convince my parents for a better ant desk, so selling it won’t be a bad idea lol.

Coulda sold you mine for 60 but they are gone...

Wait... They died?

No, they squeezed through the ventilation hole, because they are Myrmentoma Camponotus . The hole was too small for larger Camponotus , so they are currently located in my desk, if you still want to buy, I’ll let you buy the entire desk and the colony for $400.

:lol:

 

that's a great, GREAT, deal!

FYI Ant_Dude2908, S. Invicta are nowhere close to being established in California. They are found in small populations in Southern California, but that is all.

9/10 places in CA are free of them, let's hope it stays that way :).
