Important Info (Read Me)
These are my current ant colonies I have up for sale. 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 ship flat-rate USPS which is currently 8.45$ 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.
