I have three PPQ-526 permits with 50+ species on them.

I am looking to buy:

Aphaenogaster tennesseensis (solo queens or queens with hosts; no mature colonies)

Aphaenogaster floridana

Aphaenogaster ashmeadi

Aphaenogaster lamellidens

Camponotus americanus

Dorymyrmex bureni

Pheidole morrisii

Pheidole pilifera

Pheidole dentata

Pseudomyrmex pallidus (with workers)
Trachymyrmex septentrionalis

Formica neogagates
Formica argentea
Formica aserva
Formica difficilis
Formica dolosa
Formica incerta
Formica exsectoides

Formica integra

Formica neorufibarbis

Formica obscuriventris

Formica pallidefulva
Formica pergandei
Formica postoculata
Formica rubicunda
Formica subaenescens
Formica subsericea

Myrmica spatulata

I am in Virginia, as my location tag indicates, and sellers must be able to ship to my location with the ants inside of two boxes in order to prevent escape (as permit indicates.) 

Bolded species are ones that I am mainly looking for.

If anyone can collect Aphaenogaster tennesseensis (both queens and colonies), I'd be willing to pay over 30 dollars just for a queen.

No queens in Florida yet. Going to try to catch D. bureni now. When do they fly?(Day, night or morning)

Also, trying to collect trachymyrmex soon.(They fly in morning?)(I may get mistaken for another sister genus, so I will sell if I get too many colonies with workers)

I had Lasius aphidicola, but let her go because I had no host workers. 


Been keeping ants since January of 2021

 

Always try new things, even if its hard, hard is not impossible. We are smart and it's good to be smart but not too smart for your own good.
