Thank you,

I'm located in Grass Valley but ship for 1 to 2 day that buyer pays for $8.30.
Most of my species are easy to care for only needing the correct amount of time for diapause is required.

Do you have any that don't require diapause?

 

If not, how about the ones you are selling now. Have they already been through diapause and I won't have to worry about it until next winter?

 

Thank you, 

 

Luke

Hey Jeff, we're in Nevada City, and I have a 10 yr old son who's really excited to start a colony. We bought him some bits and pieces from Ants Canada for Christmas, and last year, we did catch a Campontus queen. She laid some eggs in our test tube but we think mould got in there and killed them.

 

Any ideas on keeping his enthusiasm going? He's pretty energized right now. Do you go on field trips we could maybe meet you on? Do you have any colonies for sale, or should we wait and find another Campontus queen in the spring?

 

Cheers,

 

-James & Charles (10).

Welcome to the forum, jamesgood72!  I hope you enjoy your time here.  I'll link some other sellers in California, if I were you I would check out dspdrew, nurbs, and cocdeshijie.  They have lots of colonies and are very reputable on the forum!
