Edit, no longer selling

 

Welcome! Thanks for taking a look at my thread.

 

Please don't hesitate to ask any questions! I'm happy to answer anything you would like to know

 

 

All colonies are only listed after they have at least 1 worker.

I do not ship my queens. However I do deliver (within reason) between San Diego and Riverside.

Queens come with 1 test tube founding chamber in an outworld.

Prices reflect travel for delivery, cost of collecting and rearing.

 

Pictures to come!

Found polygyne pogonomyrmex californicus today! 7 colonies with at least 2 or 3 queens apice.

 

Not sure how long these guys take to develop, but these should be available for adoption in a couple months.

 

 

Also found solenopsis xyloni-- likely infertile however. Native red fire ants though, woo!

From Drew's journal it seems the Pheidole desertorum are dimorphic?  If so, I would be interested in adopting them.

Did a check up on my pheidole, she's got her first worker. Test tube is filthy though x_x

 

I went down a key and she's not desertorum, she's actually barbata.
