You seem to know much more than all of us. I'm surprised you needed a disclaimer.


You should make him a mod here. We can learn a bunch from him. Lol
But could a mod delete some of the posts to clear this up.

You don't take returns after the queen arrives alive youre gonna refund someone 2 months later after their queen is still alive and not founding? You don't know if the queen is fertilized that brood could be drones, yes experienced keepers know not to buy queens without workers, and we can found them generally, but some of your customers are getting into the hobby. Takes 2 months and you make more money. At least put a disclaimer that these queens may not be fertilized and may not found, that it's a risk buying queens without workers.

Why don't you tell us how many colonies you've kept so far? You seem to know a lot of things that you think some of the most experienced ant keepers don't know.

There's way too much nonsense in this hobby. I tire of it.

I ordered 2 sansabeanus queens from antsemporium as well as some of the little feeders, while there was a delay in the shipping they were excellent about why there was a delay (was out of their control!), replied to my messaged quickly and were totally willing to work with me to make sure I could be home when they were delivered. The queens arrived quickly and were well packaged, I have had both now for about 5 days and they are doing very well! I look forward to ordering again in the future :)
