I'm downsizing my collection and looking to sell some of my colonies. I am a little North of Orlando and willing to drive a bit to hand off the colonies but would rather not ship. PM me if interested and let me know if you have any questions.

 

First up is an unknown species of cryptic ant that I've had identified on this forum as Tetramorium caldarium but I'm still not sure. I think it is also possible that it is some unidentified Stenamma sp. Either way they are very entertaining to watch as they will swarm fruit flies and take them down pretty aggressively as well as take honey  and sugar water. There are multiple queens, I think about 9- it's hard to get an accurate count.

 

$30

Next up I offer a very large Pseudomyrmex pallidus colony. It is definitely 100+ workers and and the tubes they live in are stuffed with brood. The colony produces alates pretty regularly and last I counted there were over 25 queens.

 

$45

Then I have a small Pseudomyrmex gracilis colony. It only has 6 members but a fair number of brood.

 

$20

I have a Camponotus floridanus colony from last summer that has 50+ workers and one small "major". They are in an antscanada nest and outworld currently.

 

$100

$200 with nest and outworld

I have an Odontomachus brunneus colony with two workers and several pupae. This queen stopped laying eggs over winter but has one now that you can see in the picture.

 

$45

And last but certainly not least, my favorite, a Cyphomyrmex minutus colony that I've had for close to a year now. They are amazing and I give them hornworm droppings that they use to feed their fungus gardens. Hard to count but I think they have over 100 members.

 

$100

Really fantastic collection you have there!  If I was in Florida, I'd buy them all from you. I don't expect you'll have any trouble finding buyers for them.

How far south are you willing to drive? Does the Pseudomyrmex pallidus colony come with the enclosure or will I need to set up my own?

Completely new to ant-ing aside from a few kiddie ant farms but I think a colony would make a wonderful addition to our science curriculum.

If you have any of these left, I don't think there's a colony on here I'm not at least a little interested in. I could also come to you as I am in that area frequently
