Camponotus cruentatus with brood 2-5 workers (starter kit)
Camponotus cruentatus are my favourite European camponotus species. When I first laid eyes on a majour worker on a holiday to Spain I was amazed by their coloration and from that day forward I had to add them to our store and now they are here! They can be a fairly aggresive species and will attack if they feel threatened. You will not be disappointed!

I have been growing and raising ant colonies for well over 5 years and always want to share the hobby!
If ant colonies die during transportation a replacement will be sent free, photographic evidence required
An excellent hobby watch how the colony grows and works to expand and feed the mighty queen, they will share all their secrets with you, Enjoy!
