Starting to get too many colonies and actually thinking selling them would be helpful all parties involved. Unless otherwise noted, queens will come in standard test tube setups. Depending on the amount you are going to purchase may be willing to meet closer to you, otherwise need to meet me within 10 miles of Fullerton. Test tubes are standard 16x150mm PYREX glass.

 

Note: I am willing to ship to anyone in CA, but only native species. All laws will be followed and shipping needs to be 2 day air or faster with signature required. You will pay for 100% shipping cost. You can get pricing quote before contacting me by using '92835, Fullerton, CA' as the ship from address. I normally ship UPS. Not currently shipping right now. Sorry!

 

 

Listing of colonies currently available:

 

 

Camponotus sansabeanus (AKA salsabeans) SALE $45 $55 - Photo Album

  • Available: 4 @ 10+ workers
  • Formicarium: 1 QT(quart) large mouth mason jar container w/ local dirt substrate

 

Formica francoeuri - (AKA franko) $25 - Photo Album

You’ll have to enter your location in on your profile first before you can buy or sell by the way

He is a great guy and fun to go anting with.  I've traded with him before and it went over smoothly.  Go for it.

The first time I ordered from StopSpazzing I asked for Solonopis Molesta came dead and the Formica lost 2 workers. These were shipped in pill cap containers. Lesson don't ship ants in pill cap containers. However StopSpazzing now ships ants in testubes, I ordered a Camponotus sansabeanus colony from him as well as another Formica colony. They came with no deaths. Ants that are shipped can not be guaranteed safety, but Stop took prauctions to ensure safety. He's a great guy and I recommend buying from him.

Would you consider Camponotus clarithorax easy to keep?

Yes, Myrmentoma Camponotus are easy to keep. They are flat, so take precautions when putting them in a nest, by putting Fluon, or running some tape ove the edge to ensure no escapes. With that being said, I didn’t take good care of my colony and the workers kept escaping. I gave them to YS to see if he had better luck.
