Three V. pergandei left.

 

Keeping a few of these since this is first time rearing this species. They are doing really well. Just moved one of them into a foraging container with two test tubes:

 

 

 

And here are some C. salsabeans I mean C. sansabeanus munching on a cricket:

This has been an amazing season for anting. I have caught more queens this year than all previous years.

 

Dropping the price of L. occidentale from $40 to $20. Have way too many and simply cannot be feeding these 24/7. They need a good home!!!

UPDATED

 

C. sansabeanus price increase to $90. They all now have 10-15 workers and also include a custom made reusable formicarium. The updated pricing not only reflects additional workers, but also the care it requires to feed them on a weekly basis as the colony grows.

 

If you need a smaller colony, I believe Drew (as of the date of this post) has a few at a lower price point.

Also, here is an update on the polygynous C. vicinus setup from earlier this month. They are doing great, only two casualties.

 

 

C. laevigatus also available now, but haven't had time to take pics yet. 2-4 workers.

Man, what I would do for one of those Liometopum colonies. :/

 

Great pictures though, they look really professional and clean.
