Important Information (READ ME):
The listings are colonies up for sale, they are reserved for California residents only and those who have a valid 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 over night, 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 - If an ant comes dead or a product comes damaged to the point of being unusable, a full refund of the price of the ant or product will be issued 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. If you question why I only allocate one hour please refer to this chart.

 

Please note that I do not usually take requests to catch a certain species and do not usually plan on making everything on this shop available again - if I find some queens of a species then they will maybe become available again, but I do not go out specifically to make species available.
