Also adding option for a free pack of black sand upon request, if purchased with a nest or outworld.

Unfortunately, there is some bad news. Due to a recent turn of events outside of my control, I'm no longer able to commercially sell ants and formicaria... I'm still able to trade ants at least, but this everything on my shop currently will be the last sales I make.

 

Because of this, I'll leave the thread up until 10/31 (Halloween). Anything not purchased may be taken down and I'll discontinue the thread to start another one as a sort of trading post for any species I want to trade.

 

I've done all I could, but I sincerely apologize for any inconveniences I may have caused. On another note though, this shop has been fun to run while it lasted. Thanks for supporting my business to all who have previously purchased from me...

Downsizing, so adding a colony of Pheidole gilvescens with 5-10 workers for $30. Only two outworlds and a coffin remain...

Like I said last month, I'd be remodeling this post a bit and take down any old things I don't need. So now I've got somewhat of a better structure to the shop (in my opinion at least) that works better for me. In short, I've got several new species available, as well as jumping spider slings that I'd like to part with. My priority would be trading in this case, since I've been trying not to "sell" anything. That being said, I may still accept cash in some instances, especially if the customer doesn't really have anything I'd be interested in. In that case, just send me a PM and I'll reply to negotiate on pricing. Refer to this post for further info.

I got twenty or so Phiddipus regius slings from a buddy a few weeks ago. They’re cool little critters!

The molesta here aren’t really real molesta, according to other CA antkeepers. Same species group, but not molesta.

Definitely! My Phidippus johnsoni from spring were pretty fun to keep.

Formica are all out. Aside from the Dorymyrmex (all have larvae, save for one), one colony/queen of each listings remain. Phidippus slings are also running out. PM me for any questions, price listings, or negotiations. I'm aware Black Friday just passed and Cyber Monday is coming up, so I may take up negotiations if anyone is interested in purchasing over trading.

 

Main post here.

Bump, added a Phidippus johnsoni subadult I found recently. Not sure if it's a male or female though.
