You're lucky to be living in their native range, so you can get them shipped to you.

Lasius minutus is now for sale. Right now, it's only solo queens. I suggest you only buy these ants if you're experienced and have plans for them, until colonies with workers are available.

Lasius minutus will likely have workers this summer.

Any plans for more ants allowed to ship to Florida? Kind of surprised you don’t allow Camponotus Pennsylvanicus to be shipped here.

It's not up to him, it's what the government allows him.

I know that. Most other companies have gotten permits for them to ship to Florida, they are just cheaper

Yesterday I ordered a 2 queen 5-50 worker colony of Lasius brevicornis with the EASTER2022 promo code the total price was only 51.95 USD. The checkout was easy, my only problem is that there is a drop down menu for country but they probably didn't mean to do that. 10/10 so far.

Yeah. A package tracking system would also be helpful. I never know quite when a package will arrive.

Florida sometimes requires that I send in voucher specimens. I have done so and they've been slow verify.

I'll see what I can do to fix that, thank you.

I typically send an email with the tracking code within a day after shipping. It's sent to whichever email is associated with each order.

I have heard that Florida’s permit process is a pain from other vendors. Now in Florida I rely on local sellers for ants that aren’t approved.

Interesting; I've never gotten those emails. Must be a glitch in the system or something.

Formisquarium bundles and more species now available, including Formica montana

 

I'd like to know what the people of formiculture want to see most in an ant store. Let me know!
