Hello!

 

I have been doing research for the last few months about ant farms. I wanted to buy an ant farm and colony here in the Portland Oregon area.

 

I am willing to travel a bit if needed to pickup. I am open to pricing and suggestions.

 

If anyone can link me with someone in my area selling ant colonies with queens please let me know.

 

Thank you tons and I very patiently await your DM.

 

Ed

Both ants and farm, with a queen. Will pay more for an established colony as well.

I had a camponotus clarithorax starter colony, but I am in California. Sorry.

I am sure that if you look hard enough, you will definitely find some queens! Try to look after a summer rain, or a near a body of water.
