Hey everyone, I have some queens/colonies for sale in Illinois right now. Contact me at 630-486-6407 if you're interested. I will do my best to answer phone calls, but please, please shoot me a text. I get a ton of spam calls and if I don't recognize the number, I will not answer it if I'm busy. I will get back to you as soon as possible. The colonies for sale are listed below: 

 

Colonies for sale:
 

Pheidole bicarinata Queen + Brood $60

Tetramorium immigrans Queen + 1-10 workers $10

Aphaenogaster texana Queen + Brood $40

 

Trachymyrmex septentrionalis 2 Queens + ~100 workers and golfball-sized fungus $150

 

I can collect colonies of Tapinoma sessile per request. I typically charge $5-15 per queen depending on quantity collected. All colonies will come with a significant amount of workers. Usually over 300.

 

I will ship colonies purchased anywhere in the state for $8.50 (the cost of shipping). If not, I am happy to meetup with you at my local police station. I am not currently meeting up with people due to the Pandemic. Thanks!

Do you have any Lasius queens? Specifically Lasius Americanus, Lasius Neoniger, or Lasius Flavus (I know that's not the right name, don't patronize me). Thanks!

Hello. Would it be possible to buy some ants (not a queen, at this point) from someone on this forum? The mail-based standard route is out of the question because of the temperature. 

 

I live in Naperville and will be happy to drive to get them. 

 

Thanks.
