Thanks man for all 3 camponotus colonies. It’s been over a year and they’ve grown incredibly. I’m planning to buy more this year as soon as you catch more. I’ll be in touch.

I've learned much from Antdrew when he sold me a few queens last season. Pretty lucky to have a good supplier who has a ton of experience in VA. 10/10 would purchase from him again.

Good guy and great ants. I got a camponotus chromaiodes for extremely good price. Even got some starter supplies that he didn't need to give me but Drew is the type that wants to help spread the hobby and helps new ant keepers. Will buy from him again for sure.

 

 

P.S

I got dibs on the next C.castaneus Queen you find ha ha. I am interested in other Camponotus types as well. You got my number....look forward to hearing from you. 

 

update:

My Camponotus Queen you sold me is now out of diapause and pumping eggs out. I got tons of them at different stages.

Those nearcticus and subbarbatus queens are TINY compared to the chromaiodes.
