P. occidentalis queens for sale. All queens are guaranteed fertile. These iconic western harvester ants are very fulfilling and easy to care for once a colony has been founded. All they really need is heat and seeds to thrive!

Each queen will come in a standard test tube setup with either a 16 or 18 mm tube. Small packs of natural Dandelion seeds will also be supplied with any order over $50.

Shipping:
2 day priority shipping will range from 10 to 20 dollars, depending on how many queens are purchased and where in the continental U.S. they will be shipped to.
***Note this species can be shipped to any continental state in the U.S. besides California and Florida without need for a permit.

Prices:
1-2 queens-$20 each
3 or more queens-$15 each
For bulk orders over 10 queens, PM me for further discounts. This species is a favorite of retailers because of their deregulated interstate shipping status. If you would be interested in purchasing these to resale locally, I'd be happy to work out a bulk order with you.

Mature brood (pupae)-$5 per 10 pupae added to the order. No refund for brood boosts.

Further notes:
  • Prefferred temperature is 80 to 90 degrees, be sure to proivide a heating gradient for optimal growth rates of larvae.
  • These ants do sting, but this species is quite docile, especially when the colony is small.
  • Can't climb most plastics and glass.
  • Favorite seeds: Dandelion, Kentucky Bluegrass, and Chia. Fish flakes are also a favorite.
  • Need humidity in the formicarium. Best formicariums to use: Dirt box style formicariums, Horizontal/Flat formicariums, THA mini hearth/labyrinth, Custom formicariums (PM for details).
*Gel ant farms are not suited for a colony's long term needs and development.


Feel free to personally message me with any offers or questions you may have,

Thanks!

I have a larger personal colony, PM me if you're interested in it. However I can't ship to California at the moment unless you have a shipping permit.

I need an idea of how many test tubes to order for this year’s upcoming flights in late July. If you are interested in buying or reserving any queens come august, especially if you plan on ordering in bulk, please let me know ASAP over a PM while prices are low!

If you would like to buy small colonies to increase the likelihood of successful long term growth, reserve a colony to be shipped to you before stock is gone around September.

I apologize but I only sell in the U.S. - however if you find a third party in the states that would be willing to ship internationally I would be happy to supply you through them.

No Pogonomyrmex queens yet, just taking reservations. I'll have some by the last few weeks of July at the earliest.

New to ant keeping but I'd like to reserve if shipping to Wyoming is in the cards.

Queens back in stock for now - I am catering to reservations and bulk orders first, but I still have a few left for $25 a test tube.

 

Many Pogonomyrmex
