Important News: I will be in New York City on Sunday, August 19 for approximately a week, give or take. Then would be a good time if you want to buy any of my ant colony's in person. I would also be willing to trade.


Hi guys so I have some queens and colonies that I would like to trade/sell. Please do not request a trade or purchase if you do not live in New York, USA.
I also only accept PayPal. But I can do cash if you are willing to drive all the way to Rochester. I can ship if you are willing to pay for shipping. (Once again, I only ship in New York) Shipping is $7.15 for 2-3 days, and $25 for overnight. All queens and colony's are housed in standard test tube setups unless other wise notified in the description. I can ship colony's only if they are in test tubes. If they are in formicaria, you have to personally pick them up.






Species: Camponotus Pennsylvanicus
Common Name: Carpenter Ant
Species Size: Large
Rarity: Common
Difficulty: Begginer
Colony Size: 1 Queen with 30+ workers and a good amount of brood
Housing: Ants Canada Omni Nest Large
Price: $250, 30% Off Now 175! (Broken outworld)
# of Colonies: 1
Description: This queen was caught in May 2018. She had been brood boosted and now has multiple majors. They are thriving in an acrylic Ants Canada Omni Nest Large formicarium. Great visibility with easy hydration and feeding. All in one outworld and formicarium. *Formicarium slightly modified to decrease chance of escapees and to add more visibility.

Myrmica sp.
$50, 50% off Now $25! (Queen is dying)

I have some ants that I haven't priced so people can PM me their offers. These ants are also for trade.

-Ponera Pennsylvanica (VERY VERY RARE!) small chance of queen less colony, almost 100% sure that there is one though.

-Tapinoma Sessile, 1 worker

-1 Lasius sp. (yellow)

-1 Lasius sp. (Black)

-Temnothorax Curvispinosus, 19 workers

-Triple Queen Formica Subserica, 3 Workers, Aus Ants Size 1 Formicarium






Let me know if you would like to buy or trade. PM me to negotiate trades or purchases.

Thanks
