That’s embarrassing in their part. Ruginodis are so tiny compared to haemotodus and brunneas

Trust me. It was done on purpose. Money really show peoples true nature. Just within this past week or two because so much have flown, I've seen so many "responsible" "legal" "permit" keepers clearly not believing that.

On another note, what did you catch? I might be interested in Haemotodus if you're looking to offload for super cheap. 

I got mine for super cheap last year. $7 each. Sounds like you already know but its a lot of work, feeding, time, and space to keep them alive so the more veteran Floridians either don't care to catch them after already having a colony and/or they offload it quick after catching a big flight.


Keeps: Atta TexanaOdontomachus haematodus, Crematogaster Sp., Prenolepis imparis, Camponotus pennsylvanicus, Camponotus chromaiodes, Tetra sp

 

Wants (Please reach out if you have them for sale if you’re in the US): Acromyrmex Sp., Atta Mexicana, Cephalotes Sp., Myrmecocystus Sp (Prefer Mexicanus), Odontomachus Sp. (Prefer Desertorum), Pachycondyla Sp., Pheidole Sp (Prefer Rhea. The bigger the better. Not the tiny bicarinata), Pogonomyrmex Sp., Pseudomyrmex Sp. (Prefer the cute yellow ones)

I have some ruginodis, but majority is haemotodus. I am okay with the work, but I will probably be selling to anyone who wants one or two 20-30$ a piece. Not too expensive when you consider that in some areas they are not present. You just have to know where to look.

Oh lord…

If they are common, they sell for less, not to mention the time it takes to correctly raise a lot of Odontomachus colonies to even 10 workers…

Yep. How I was able to get Haematodus for dirt cheap. Seller was just trying to offload it. I have missed out on two species this year. Some vendors or people thinking they can flip them for profit and buying up stuff in mass. I am just gonna wait until towards end of season and see how that's going for them.
