As the title mentioned, I'm from South Carolina, in Columbia, and I'm gonna be selling ants. I currently have several colonies, and I'd be willing to either sell or trade for certain ones. All of the colonies up for sale are listed below. Colonies I could possibly trade for (depending on the species) are also listed below. PM me if you are interested in any of them, and I will let you know when they go up for sale or for trade. If there are any particular species you are looking for, PM me and I will see what I can do. I have seen many, many species here in South Carolina, and I may be able to obtain a particular species for you. Ants can either be shipped out of picked up personally. When you buy ants from here, I would appreciate it if you would leave a review down below, as it helps people know what they are getting themselves into and it helps me know what I can improve on. If you would prefer, ants in the for sale can be traded for, but they must be picked up personally, unless you have experience with shipping live arthropods or other small animals.

 

       Rules:

 

  • In order to purchase any of these ants, YOU MUST BE FROM THE STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA, unless you have obtained a PPQ 526 permit
  • Ants can either be shipped or obtained personally, whichever is more convenient for you
  • Traded ants must be picked up personally, unless you have experience with shipping live arthropods

Yeah, if only you did! They're some nice queens. I'm currently keeping them in pairs. The ones I've had the longest are the only ones with eggs so far, and they seem to get along very well. It's a shame more people don't live in South Carolina. :/

Just as a note, I will be setting up a "store" in my front yard from time-to-time. I've done things like this before, but never with ants. I will have some ants for sale on display, as well as my other colonies (that could be traded for if I agree to it). More information will be announced soon.
