Important Info (Read Me)
These are my current ant colonies I have up for sale, I am open to trades! PM me if you are interested, ask questions in this thread. I will ship, customer pays shipping, otherwise you must be able to drive to Moreno valley, I normally meet at a designated swap zone near the town police station, as this allows for safe trading/selling for both parties.

I ship flat-rate USPS which is currently 8.30$ for most sales (price increases if it is a large order that won't fit in the small flat-rate box). You can also request special shipping such as express, or a different shipping service such as FedEx.


California residents only, valid PPQ permits accepted after April 5th, 2021.

If paying through PayPal, select "pay a friend" (do not select "paying for a service").

For those who do not have an account here, or for those who would rather email me, send me an email at: Theantguy17@gmail.com

D-o-A policy: Full refund of dead ants upon receival of video evidence of deaths within 24 hours of arrival. You can also opt for a credit equal to the amount paid for dead ants, this credit can be used for future purchases with me. You can also opt for me to send a replacement if I have one available. Policy is void (as in you will not receive a refund/credit/replacement) if package is left on porch for longer than 1 hour (60 minutes). You completely control the shipping process and I will send when you decide, however I will not send standard mail on Friday-Sunday, or on any day where the temperature is particularly hot or cold (>100 F or <40 F). Express mail or services that will deliver on weekends can be sent on any day of the week. Customer (you) pays full shipping cost.

COVID-19 Delays: Due to current circumstances, I am selling ants under some specific conditions. Pickup is still accepted though contact will be limited and you must bring and wear a mask, that is firm. Shipping may be delayed if I am visiting the post office too frequently.
