Fluon, Camponotus modoc, Crematogaster cerasi, Lasius brevicornis, Monomorium ergatogyna, and Formica incerta all in stock.

Are those Cremas some of the Virginia stock?

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!


When you ask what we would like to see most in an ant store, do you means from one that only deals in ants, one that only deals in supplies (nests, outworlds, supplies for tube setups, etc?), or both?

Both. I aim to cater to the community as a whole.

What I like to see with shops that specifically sells ants is already pretty much done in your shop. You have clear photos, a good, accurate description and your prices are fair. Of course, we always want "cheaper", but I wouldn't roll my eyes at your prices at all.

As far as equipment goes, I like a little variety. Not just one type of nest material.. Maybe do SOME hybrids, SOME ultracal and SOME plastic nests, not all one type. Also, I like some good test tube setup options. The more creative/useful, the better.

I think another cool thing would also carry things useful to anting.. Perhaps some quality aspirators and whatever else you can think of that might not only be useful to the consumer but also bring you a little extra cash flow.

I think our North American companies all excel at what they do, I just think it would be great to have a one stop shop. (I find myself buying something I need for something different from this shop or there).

Thank you! I've been working toward that and I will continue to do so.

Lasius claviger with hosts is now in stock! These queens are fully accepted and this is the first time healthy queens + hosts have been commercially sold. There are only a few colonies available this year. Take a look here.
