in addition to formicaria, I hope you will sell decorations.

Well, we don’t exactly have the ability to manufacture anything at the moment. Our formicariums are hand made. However, if I come across someone with the ability to create decorations, I will ask them to join our team. Our shop will be a platform for small time sellers to sell their products. Although we will pick and choose which small time sellers we wish to support. I’m hoping that many will eventually join, yet right now we’re keeping it simple.

I will consider joining after I perfect my grout nests. :)

We'd love to have you! Also, I hear you might be selling Pogonomyrmex occidenetalis soon? If so you would be welcome to sell them on our website.

Although we would appreciate it if they raised workers by themselves. Wouldn't want to be selling possibly unmated or genetically unfit queens.

So, formally, i am going to say that we will be a platform, as AntsDakota said, for people to sell their formicariums. so if you are interested talk to us or prepare an inventory. the website will take a while, but with all this help... :)

Of course. I don't even sell boosted/possibly unmated queens on my page.

Forum?

We don’t plan on taking any business away from Formiculture, if that’s what you’re asking. Just a nice little community where people can ask us questions and such.

 

What is your plan for preventing that? In my opinion, you can use the time and resources for making the forum on other things, and just redirect people to formiculture. You guys have a presence on here, it would be good, just like how we have vendors that do support here.

We will direct people to both Formiculture and there.

The website truly is a construction project right now. The front page and lots of the main pages are finished and look very nice, yet many subpages are only half completed.

Sorry, it's still up in the air, as we're working on the wiki at the moment. Wouldn't be far fetched to put the release within 2-3 months; I'm hoping sooner, but it is a lot of work.

Unfortunately we don't have the resources right now to deal with the legal issues involved with shipping internationally, but we hope to eventually.

The wiki is also coming along smoothly, now. For a while we were attempting to figure out the 'dynamic pages' feature, which would allow us to expand beyond the 100 page limit. That was a setback, but now that that's out of the way, we're back on track and making progress! 

 

This is being made on Wix, btw.

Question antsdakota will you be working with gan farmers across the USA like Canada-ant-colony is? Also will you be selling Pogonomyrmex occidentalis and if so how much I will probably want to buy.

At first I think we'll just be selling P. occidentalis, although we may expand into this field in the future. Although we are having multiple formicarium sellers, as we don't have manufacturing capacity at the moment. Ant_Dude2908 is going to be selling the Pogonomyrmex, and I'm not certain as to how much he'll be charging. I'll have to ask him.
