Welcome to Ants_Dakota's Ant Shop!

Run, managed, and stocked by Ants_Dakota

All ants are guaranteed not to be brood boosted(given brood from other colonies), ensuring that the queens are fertile and healthy

Sales to South Dakota Residents Only

 

Available Ants:

 

Tetramorium immigrans

Available Colonies: 2

Queen Count per Colony: 1

Ants: Colony 1: 12 Colony 2: 5

Brood: Healthy amount of eggs and larvae

Housing: Test Tube

Price: Colony 1$10 Colony 2: $8

Color: Black

Experience Level: Beginner

Species Status: Semi-Invasive(do not release)

 

Colony 1

Attached File  P1050060.JPG   181.1KB   1 downloads

 

Colony 2

Attached File  P1050064.JPG   200.33KB   0 downloads

 

Care: Tetramorium immigrans are very fast growing species. They will eat anything you give them, can go long times without food, and are almost impossible to kill. They are not easily disturbed by light, so you can look at them many times. They are probably the easiest ant to raise as a beginner. They will live in any setup you give them, and will flourish.

 

Myrmica americana

Available Colonies: 2

Queen Count per Colony: Colony 1: 1,  Colony 2: 2

Special Offer: One 4 Queened Colony available for $20!(SOLD)

Ants: 0

Brood: None until spring of 2021(are in hibernation)

Housing: Test Tube

Price: Colony 1: $10 Colony 2: $15

Color: Bright Red

Experience Level: Beginner

Species Status: Native

 

Colony 2

Attached File  P1050013.JPG   202.41KB   1 downloads

 

Care: Myrmica americana are harder to raise at first, as they are semi-claustral, but if they have been fed and cared for by an advanced ant-keeper, they are very easy to keep. Their bright red color and ability to form colonies of many queens makes them a fun species to keep. They enjoy plastic setups, which helps keep their overall cost down, as plastic setups are low priced. They reproduce very rapidly after their first nanitics.

 

If interested, please comment below and send me a personal message. Ant sales to South Dakota residents only. I will meet the buyer in Sioux Falls, or ship the ants directly to them. Prices for ants may be negotiated, and trades are optional.

South Dakotans! What ant species would you like to see me sell? I would make it first priority to find and raise some of them for you!

Yes, an unfortunate test tube flood led to the demise of my Myrmica colony, and therefore I decided to start again with the four queens. They were fat and healthy when I got them, and I have since fed them, making them even fatter. I am expecting eggs soon, if they lay this year at all.

good luck! Hopefully they will lay this year as with my other myrmica queens! And thanks for buying!

Also to help promote our franchise, perhaps you should rename this to ‘The Official AntsDakota Store’ and later sell formicariums on this thread as well.
