Hello!

I'm looking for semi claustral queens (no workers). Any species that’s good for a beginner/intermediate. Also looking for any fire ant species (Solenopsis xyloni, etc.)I will pay for shipping! I’m in CA.

Edit: Also looking for isopods, springtails for a 10 gallon planted vivarium with is currently inhabited by 2 Madagascar hissing cockaroaches. Any other critters that can go in there as well :D

Thanks!  :)

Most species have already flown this year, so high chances most colonies people have have workers.
Current Colonies:
1x Camponotus Vicinus (3 Workers)

Single Queens:
3x Camponotus Clarithorax
4x Camponotus Maritimus
5x Camponotus Ca02
7x Camponotus Sansabeanus
1x Myrmecocustus Testaceus
3x Prenolepis Imparis

It hasn't been updated for a month, I'm assuming the brood the xyloni had are workers now.

Edited, looking for isopods for vivarium, preferably the porcellio genus (or any of the ones that don't roll up like armadillidium)
