         Please note:

 

         Species that are in stock have been moved to the top of the page - the other species shown are what we have offered for sale over the past year. We have left these species on display so you can see the kind of stock we offer for sale.

         

         We are now also offering a live arrival guarantee! (See our terms and conditions regards this.)

 

         Due to demand: For a trial period we are willing to accept orders less than our usual minimum (£100), but for any orders under this amount the customer will need to pay the full cost of shipping.

 

             Important - Please read!

 

  •     Due to the work involved and the fact that we subsidize the postage cost - the minimum order we can accept is £100 (U.K. Pounds Sterling) excluding postage. Please see note below regards  

       this.

 

  •     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 high risk of reclaimed payments - all new 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 simply be refunded.

Oecophylla!

 

         We have recently found some very good ‘Weaver ant’ queens (Oecophylla). It is difficult to obtain true fertile queens of this species and they can only be found at this time of year.

         Queens on their own are difficult to maintain and frequently fail to establish colonies if continually disturbed or kept in incorrect conditions. As we have the past experience in raising new colonies we will keep these new queens until they have formed small colonies of about 30+ workers.

         The first of the colonies should be ready for dispatch around the middle of July. If you want to reserve a colony please let me know now. We expect them to sell fast and it is unlikely we will be able to find any more.
