Tetramorium caespitum

(The Pavement Ant)


Available:


- Queen (With Brood)

- Multiple Queens (With Brood)

- Queen with workers (10-50 workers)





- A great beginner species, this extremely common ant can be found almost anywhere! T. caespitum are commonly known as pavement ants--which is exactly where one will most likely find them. Huge swarms of these ants can be noticed on the sides of sidewalks when colonies collide in a territory war. These ants aren't particularly picky with their food and will eat almost anything. 






Formica fusca
(Black Meadow Ant)

Available:


- Queen (With Brood)

- Queen with workers (1-10 workers)







- A relatively fast ant, F. fusca prefer flight over fight when it comes to confrontations with other ant colonies. They are an easy beginner species to keep but are very skittish to vibrations and light. 






Camponotus pennsylvanicus

(Eastern Black Carpenter Ant)


Available:


- Sold out



- Normally nesting in deadwood, the Eastern Black Carpenter ant is also a known pest in homes and cottages. They don't eat wood (as is commonly believed), but they will burrow through it. They're extremely adaptable to nest variations as some colonies have been found in household insulation. The majors (soldier caste) of these ants can reach a very impressive size. These ants have a sweet tooth and prefer sugar-water and honey-water over anything else, but also enjoy crickets. 




Formica subsericea 

(Silver Meadow Ant)


Available:


- Queen (With Brood)

- Queen with workers (1-10 workers)






- Similar to F. fusca, F. subsericea is skittish to light and vibration. The workers of this species are notably much more aggressive than their F. fusca neighbours. The queens of these ants are also much larger than F. fusca queens. These ants have a beautiful silvery sheen in the sunlight. 



Formica incerta 

(Red Meadow Ant)


Available:


- Sold out






- These ants are the most aggressive species of the native formica ants here. Queens are leaner and faster, and will accept the pupae of other formica species. Although they can found on their own, F. incerta are a partial slave-making species as colonies of this species have been documented raiding F. fusca and F. subsericea nests for their larvae and pupae. 



Solenopsis molesta

(Thief Ants)


Available:


- Sold out






- These ants are absolutely tiny. They're not an easy species to keep, and colonies don't get too large. They're called thief ants because they live undetected, alongside other ant colonies. These ants love oily and greasy foods. 





Aphaenogaster picea 


Available:


- Queen with brood







- Colonies of this species can get very large in a short period of time and are very aggressive. The workers of this species have long legs and are excellent huntress ants. They're extremely interesting to watch and are medium-sized ants.
