Starting in Spring of 2019, we at Canada Colony try to bring to you the hobby of antkeeping at an affordable price. Mainly based in Southern Ontario, we sell ants from all across Canada, with the goal of making antkeeping a more affordable hobby. We are also in the process of importing formicaria to redistribute and have a few of our own products in the works. You may also order on our website at www.canada-ant-colony.com

Most inventory has been transferred to a distributor in Winnipeg. Will update inventory tonight. In addition to small numbers of the previously mentioned Formica, Tetramorium queens, as well as test tube feeders will be available.

If you live in canada I can't recommend the bradleyi queens enough. They are one of the best looking queens you can get.

Formica bradleyi with workers will be available soon. Only 8 queens left!

Lasius americanus (BC strain) will be put on the shop today for 10$ per queen and 25$ for trios.

Formica montana is now available! Site will be updated tonight

Pogonomyrmex occidentalis may be available next week! Pricing remains undecided

Small colonies of Stigmatomma pallipes will be available as well. Since these reproduce slowly, only a limited supply will be sold each year to ensure that their populations aren't overcollected

On another note: all orders placed between the 19 and the 28th will be shipped on the 29th due to the main distributor being on vacation for a week
