Hello everyone!

Man where do i start?!
I started ant keeping roughly 2 years ago, all because of AntsCanada's amazing videos and info. Honestly i random stumbled upon his videos on day and have stooped since. Woke up one day and now here i am 2 years later keeping more and more ants every day... The wife loves it... lol

I got into this hobby and quickly went into 3d printing parts and fun accessories for my ants and friends with ant colonies. I however have never posted on here before but have read a great deal of info for id'ing etc. I'm excited to join the community and help bring positive vibes and contribute in anyway i can.

Since I've gotten more in depth in Anting, I've found that in Canada we lack the diversity of ant accessories or anything ant related Sooo i opened a Canadain retail website for everything ants (except the sale or trade of ants) from DIY kits to authentic nests like AntKitUK and TarHeelAnts!

For anyone reading this, maybe kindly direct me to a thread for retailers? The general market place doesnt seem right being its more for personal?

Thank you again and hope to be a contributor to this community!

Hey man!

 

Great to see you here! The community is quite nice and I bet you will have a great time here. There are a few other people that live in BC here so you aren't the only British Columbian lol (not that that matters). I know there are a few people from the island so I bet you will be able to find some local guys that you can discuss fauna with.

 

Anyways welcome to Formiculture!

Welcome to Formiculture :D
Greetings from the Vancouver area, unfortunately I don’t think we have a thread specifically dedicated to retailers or a list or vendors. You can contact people through PM though if you want to talk to them personally

Colonies

Hi there, and welcome. Getting back into ant keeping myself, I'd be interested in what you have for sale.
