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:

 

Camponotus pennsalvanicus

Available Colonies: 1

Queen Count per Colony: 1

Ants: Colony 1: 0

Brood: Just eggs for now

Housing: Test Tube

Price: Colony 1$10

Color: Black

Experience Level: Intermediate

Species Status: Native

 

Camponotus pennsalvanicus is the most common camponotus over the prairies of SD. Large and black, there is nothing that defines them from other species of camponotus. They have large majors, slow growing colonies at first(explosive growth after a couple years though), and a need for urea, which makes them a little bit interesting to keep...

 

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.

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

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.
