Welcome to my new ant shop! I'm going to be selling some ants here.

 

Pickup/Shipping: Local pickup in in the California Bay Area. Shipping is available, buyer will pay for the shipping cost. For local pickup, the payment will be in cash. For shipping, the payment must be through PayPal Friends and Family. 

 

DOA Policy: I will package the ants to the best of my ability, but if they arrive dead there will be no refunds, since I cannot control what conditions they will be going through during shipping.

 

I also accept trades and offers. PM if interested in up-to-date pics of my ants! My Discord username is Dr. LingLong#2099 if you prefer a quicker way of reaching out (not a real doctor by the way :D). 

 

Also, BUYER MUST BE IN CALIFORNIA, or have a permit if from another state.
