YEEEEEESS!

This is the best news!

It's not clear to me if these come with the lids and the mesh covers for the air holes. The lid is the feature that makes these such good outworlds. Otherwise one could simply use a fish tank.

In addition to that we also offer caps which gives air circulation.

I am pretty ecstatic about this. This was the first vendor I discovered when I got into ant keeping but could never justified the shipping cost.


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)

Thank you for the comment. It was not easy to get trough the legislation in the USA. I am particular talking about the FDA for our supplement feeding & APHIS (soil) issue as well other rules in the USA. However we've made it, and we are pleased to have Talis as our partner in the US on board for the distribution of our full sortiment.

Regarding the price issue I can tell you that shipment prices in general has been increasing dramatically because of covid19, War in Ukraine, etc. But please also take into account that with each import into the U.S.A. customs needs to be paid !So please bear all that factors in mind. Of course plastic from China is cheaper, but we offer sustainable products made out of Glas. Each product is hand made, and therefore unique. And you will certainly enjoy that difference. It's long lasting product. Easy to clean, not form able, because of temperature differences etc.

I bought some using a reshipper and it's worth it IMO. The outworlds last forever, can be cleaned and look wonderful. I live in a small apartment so I need my ants to "look good" so I can show them off to friends. These enclosures are worthy of your living room. Keep them clean and tidy and you have something that will delight even your friends who don't like bugs. 

With the lid covered in fluon they are able to contain even excellent climbers like Camponotus discolor. 

If you are interested in these outworlds remember to buy a lid, the lip if you have climbing ants, and mesh vents for the top.

I don’t see any options for lids or frames.

So what size ant farm would you recommend for Pogonomyrmex occidentalis?  Small or medium.

I have this setup and love it.  I show it in my "ant room tour" near the end.

I didn't buy it as a kit like this. I started with just one of the vertical nests and the outworld.

And for Pogonomyrmex you don't really need the glass lip. They can't climb the glass and if you keep the lid on they will be fine.

The best option we would recommend is the messor set medium size. Since this species is an harvester ant. Please check the website of Talis:
