A few still available! In 2-3 weeks once larva and pupae appear they will go into the colony sales pricepoint.
 
Putting this notice up because many of you always ask for single queen sales instead of colonies.

I purchased four queens from Nurbs and I can say three of them are already  producing eggs pretty impressive!

I've had several orders with Nurbs and I can say ants were expertly packed and arrived in good condition.

Feel free to message on instagram @nurbsants for the most updated pics. This is the quickest way to reach me.

 

I've continued to heat all the honeypots and they are growing fast. There are about 10 mexicanus colonies in bamboo nests with 50-100 workers now, which are already spoken for, so they are not listed. The buyer is coming to pick them up in late December. If that sale falls through I will put them back on the market.

 

There are no more pots at the lower pricepoint with 2-10 workers.

 

Camponotus have been taken off heat but still available for sale.

 

Might give out some free purpleback pot colonies (like I've done in the past) by mid December. They are fertile and have workers but are not growing as fast as others, which I don't put on the market. 

 

Again, California residents only, unless you have a legit permit. Pickup is preferred, but shipping is available.

Not a lot left from last season, all honeypots sold. Started heating Camponotus again and they all have lots of eggs, larva, and pupae.
