Important Information (READ ME):
The listings are colonies up for sale, they
 are reserved for California residents only and those who have a valid APHIS-PPQ 526 permit. PM me if you have offers or are interested (trade offers are accepted); you can ask questions in this thread and I will answer to the best of my ability. I ship via flat-rate boxes, usually small depending on the order. You can also request special shipping such as express, or a different shipping service such as FedEx at your own cost. Test tube colonies will be shipped and colonies in formicaria will usually be pick-up only. I accept payment through Venmo and PayPal. If paying through PayPal, use the friends and family option - do not select paying for a service.

 

DOA policy - A full refund will be issued for dead ants if you have a video of the unboxing within an hour of arrival. If the package is left on your porch or left in your mailbox for an hour or more after arrival there will be no refund. You have control of the shipping process and I can ship when you want. If you question why I only allocate one hour please refer to this chart.
