Updated Summer 2020 list, All orders over $100 will receive a free queen.

We conduct all payments via PayPal. All statewide orders carry a $10 shipping and handling fee. Out of state shipping prices vary and we ship Mon-Weds.

Located in north-central Florida. We will gladly ship nationwide if the recipient is a 526 permit holder. For instructions on how to apply for a permit, see the guide posted below. Applications can take up to several months to get a response so immediate application is recommended

Aphaenogaster ashmeadi $60 - known to cut and harvest edible mushrooms to carry bath to their nest. 1 founding colony available

Camponotus castaneus $50 - Gorgeous and large carpenter ant, short flight window that has ended for the year. 3 founding colonies available

Camponotus floridanus $30 - One of the fastest growing camponotus species in north america, colonies easily attain several hundred members and full sized majors within the first year, very aggressive and fun to keep species. 10+ founding colonies available.

Colobopsis impressa $30 - Small polymorphic species whos majors use their large heads to guard the nest entrance. Monogynous and Polygynous (pontentially pleometrotic) colonies available. 10+ founding colonies available

Crematogaster minutissima $40 - Subterannean species with an extremely brief flight window, highly polygynous and nests can contain numerous queens, will produce intercastes and multiqueen colonies can also breed within the nest. Monogynous and Polygynous colonies available. 10+ founding colonies available

Dorymyrmex bureni $30 - beautiful, active, and fast moving species who's conical mounds are often littered with the bodies of Solenopsis invicta. 10+ founding colonies available

Odontomachus brunneus $50 - Native trapjaw species, some populations are passive and almost timid, others are significantly more aggressive, they often prey on termites and small arthropods and often themselves serve as prey to Formica archboldi ants. Multiple colonies and newly collected queens available

Pheidole cf metallescens $50 - Small but beautiful species with metallic blue workers and orange majors and queens. These specimens have much darker queens but still have the metallic blue workers so I am unsure if they are metallescens or perhaps littoralis. 3 founding colonies available

We also have a few established viviariums with mature colonies for sale, for local pick up in Gainesville only, pm for details.

Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. -Proverbs 6: 6-8
