Hello there! It's the start of monsoon season here in Arizona and I've been catching lots of queens lately such as Solenopsis Krockowi, Solenopsis Xyloni, Solenopsis Amblychila, Novomessor Albsisetosus/Cockerelli, Pheidole Hyatti, Dorymyrmex Bicolor, and Novomessor. I currently don't have enough test tubes and founding formicaria for them all. So I made this Topic to try and sell some of my ants. If you find an ant species here that's posted that's for sale please let me know!

If you live in California, it is illegal to purchase colonies from Arizona. Crossing state lines with a fertile queen, with exceptions for Pogonomyrmex occidentalis and for those with permits, is not allowed.

Currently Keeping:

- Veromessor pergandei (1 queen, 600 workers)

- Novomessor cockerelli (1 queen, 200 workers)

I put "NicholaP's Arizona Ant Market" for a reason. So people don't think I live in california. Plus beneath my profile it says where in the U.S. I live.

Doesn't matter whether it's a fertile queen, a queen alate, workers, or any caste for that matter. Even brood is illegal to take over state lines unless you have a valid permit, not just fertile queens.

Acromyrmex no longer coming soon...But... The Solenopsis xyloni have nanitics now! I will list them for sale once they have 50 workers each. And the Novomessor have massive larvae! So expect Novomessor for sale in maybe 1-2 months.

Changed name of thread from "NicholasP's Arizona Ant Market" to NicholasP's Michigan Ant Market" as I'm very close to moving to Michigan. I hope to get permits and provide you guys with all the lovely ants Michigan has to offer!
