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!
