Important - Please read:
Due to demand we are now willing to accept small orders. However, for any orders with a value below £100 the customer will need to pay the full cost of postage.
For orders over £100 the cost of postage will be subsidized and you will only be charged
approximately 50% of the postal cost.
Please ensure you read our 'terms and conditions' prior to placing any orders. If you place an order it is on the understanding that you are accepting our terms as stated.
Please email us prior to placing an order - to discuss the method of payment and an agreeable posting date etc.
Due to the widespread operation of 'scammers' resulting in the risk of reclaimed payments, all customers will now be asked to pay by a bank to bank transfer or via PayPal ‘Friends and Family’. If you are not willing to send payment this way please do not place an order - if you do your
payment will be refunded.
We are now also offering a live arrival guarantee. (See our terms and conditions regard this.)

SALES UPDATE - December 1st 2020
Please note our shop is now closed for two months. This is due to several reasons. To mention a few: The post is usually slower coming up to Christmas and the new year - so delays would be expected, the weather is often colder which limits the days we can post orders out, and there are quite a few public holidays that would further impact on delivery times.
This rest period will enable us to do some modifications to our ant farm buildings, give us time to sterilize all our containers / out worlds, enable us to manufacture more artificial nests, to stock up on required necessities, and to give us some time to modify and update our web site.
We will be ready for sales again in early February - when hopefully many of the global problems encountered this year will be resolved.
JANUARY 10th - Update
We have now completed the adjustments to our buildings - adding more ventilation, increased shading, and more importantly additional bench space - so we can hold about 20 percent more stock.
We are already in the process of restocking, and will have some very nice species to offer when we reopen in early February – along with our regular selling popular species, we will have some additional very interesting species which we have never offered for sale before.
