This is the megathread for my website, https://atlanticants.com/

I will leave a new post on this thread when I add new species, run a sale, or have an announcement regarding the website and policies. Please leave your questions and reviews on this thread and I will do my best to answer as soon as possible. 

Atlantic Ants is a website that legally sells queen ants and colonies to permitted states in the United States. I am based in Virginia and have PPQ-526 permits from the USDA that allow me to export certain species to certain states. I will not send ants to a state or country that I do not have permits for, unless you have permits yourself. My end goal is to provide access to well-priced ants to as many people as possible.

In no particular order, here are some species that you can expect to be available in the 2023 season:
Camponotus chromaiodes (has been available)
Camponotus pennsylvanicus (has been available)
Camponotus nearcticus (has been available)
Aphaenogaster rudis (IS available)
Aphaenogaster fulva (IS available)
Aphaenogaster picea (has been available)
Tapinoma sessile (has been available)
Colobopsis obliqua (will be available soon!)

Lasius americanus (has been available)
Lasius brevicornis (will be available soon!)

Hypoponera opacior (has been available)
Ponera pennsylvanica (has been available)
Brachyponera chinensis
Vollenhovia emeryi (has been available)

I have done a good amount of business with Oiled Olives, and he's a great guy to work with. His prices are unbeatable, the ants are always healthy and you always get what you pay for.

 

I recommend!

Any new stuff coming

Yes, Lasius aphidicola with hosts will be available as soon as the queens start laying (in approximately a week, since two are already physogastric) and Pheidole dentata with workers will be available in around a month.

Camponotus chromaiodes also now have workers and can be shipped to any state that they are native to.

I've had bad luck with parasitic queens I find them more often than normal queens but haven't been able to start a colony. I follow tutorials online but the host workers always end up killing the Queen. I've given up after the fourth queen killed because I don't like seeing them die. How do you do it?

lasius aphidicola sounds quite attractive. Pheidole doesn’t sound native. Any tips on catching pheidole genera

Those are some nice prices. How long does it take for the termites take to get nymphs?

Thanks! Last year, mine took around 2-3 months to get to nymphs.
