Hello everyone!!!
Excuse me first of all for my English which is not terrible!
Here, I live in France about 40 kilometers from Paris.
I already have 3 colonies (acromyrmex octospinosus, acromyrmex sp, sexdens attack) and I would like to have one last one: atta texana!!!
I would like to know if anyone here on the forum sells a queen? Or several queens?
And if it is possible to send it to me?
Thank you in advance.

This is a species that is native to the United States and Mexico. The forum rules do not permit members from posting cross border offers.

"Cross-border offers are not permitted between any members (participating members must reside in the same country or trading zone)."

You would need to find someone in the EU who sells this species. Have you tried AntStore.net?

 @jojototo, why did you report drtrmiller's post?

At first glance, his post could have seemed rude. Upon closer inspection, it was just the hard truth. :P

I don't know, I'm just trying to interpret an opinion that isn't mine.


@jojo, try buying a different Atta species from a local ant store. Keep in mind that this forum discourages and hates across border/ international ant sales, it is bad for the ants and the environment.

Ever heard the story of the leaf-cutter ants and the arboretum?

I'm confused, the OP uses the report button to reply to people's comments? Including hunters as well.   @jojototo, you know your supposed to use the reply button right?

Maybe he's trying to Quote but hitting the report button instead?

There are lots of shops in the EU that are selling Atta.
