For out of state buyers:

1) The ants cannot be released due to being from a different location from where it was first collected. Releasing the ants will cause a change in the ecosystem which could be problematic for currently existing species. 
2) After purchase, these ants cannot be resold. These are for the buyer and the buyer only. 
3) If these ants die or you get tired of them, you must place the ants in a bag and put the bag in the freezer for 8 hours. Then, they must be thrown in the trash.

Hi there!

Do you still have Camponotus nearcticus for sale?

I'm sure about the size of the ants as well. I bought a few different enclosures for the future once the colony requires it.

The outworld part has holes for air flow, and I'm curious if you think they will be contained well enough

Here is a picture. Let me know your thoughts!
