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 WILL NOT MEET ANYWHERE ELSE.

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!!!

If paying though Paypal, select "pay a friend" (do not select "paying for a service").

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. Pick up is now offered but under specific conditions, message me if you want to pick up. Currently, shipping will be the main option, with some specific drawbacks. In order to limit the amount of times I need to leave the house. I will only be visiting the post office twice a month MAXIMUM. At my discretion. Delays will likely be common, however I can assure you that you will indeed get the ants you paid for. As is usual, the customer controls the shipping process, if you want 1 day shipping, and are willing to pay for it, that is what I will do. If you want the ants to be packaged a certain way, I can do that. Extra fees may be applied if I have to spend money on specific shipping materials. If no special instructions are given, I will be shipping through whatever shipping method I deem suitable for the ants. I apologize for any inconvenience, especially due to delays. Buy at your own risk, this is a crazy time right now.
