Thank you to everyone who helped contribute to building the new site. I am happy to finally say that we are back up and running and will be for the foreseeable future.

 

Please check out our new, rebuilt website at www.Antsylvania.com.

 

Use this thread for suggestions, recommendations, questions, or concerns about the new site. The goal of Antsylvania is not to sell ants, but to improve the accessibility of ant-keeping as a hobby. If the website doesn't do that and there are ways that I can change it so it does, please let me know.

I like it, but a lot of those prices are quite high.

Thank you for your concern. For the time being, let's try to focus on the more qualitative aspects of the site, like design and functionality.

Love the new look, but as Mantiobant stated, the ants are a bit over priced.

Formica neogagates is polygynous.

Thank you both. I have spent arguably far too much time photographing ants.

Beautiful site and pictures, but just one problem. You don't need to reinvent the wheel! There are many other marketplaces for ants that provide them at a MUCH cheaper price point.

While the idea is great, I don't really see a place for the organization, and the prices are really to steep for most species. Great work on the design though.

No offense intended by any sense, but I'm super impressed you guys made over 100 much less 200 sales with ants as expensive as 100$ for just Tetramorium
