For the next month I will be downsizing and selling my founding queens at very low prices. Each queen will come in a suitable founding setup, and will be guaranteed fertile. All of the species listed below have brood and many queens may have workers by the time of purchase. I have multiples of many of the species listed. I will send images of any of the queens/colonies below if interested. Rest assured none of these colonies and queens were dug up from pre-existing colonies, and all queens were found within Utah.

 

I ship throughout Utah, and I can ship to those with proof of permits outside the state. Direct pickup is also an option. 2 day shipping is $10 for in-state purchases with free shipping for purchases over $50. DOA refund.

 

Feel free to message me by shooting me a PM on the forum or contacting me through KSL. It's first come first serve until stock is depleted, and I'm happy to answer any questions you may have.

I think probably a different morph of Formica nr. Pallidefulva or something related to Pacifica.(If only I had permits)

Edit: I used Google lens and it came up with Formica rufibarbis and they look very similar there have been records in the us that may be it but maybe they are just related.

I've kept F. neorufibarbis, a similar species in the US to F. rufibarbis, but these queens are a bit larger and established in arid climates.
