Queen Ants

So you need information on the buying a queen ant?  Well we have the answers and info.  Send us your questions.

The Queen ant is the one who rules the nest.  She is the one that everyone in the ant colony looks to please.

The Queen ant is usually the largest of all of the colony and she rules the roost and is the breeder and egg layer of the bunch.  Kinda like Mom @ home.( more info coming)

Bad news though if you want to buy a live queen ant you are going to have to dig her up yourself as it is illegal for us to ship them. You cannot buy a live one from us only harvester ants.

This is because a queen can produce over 10000 babies at one time.

Breeding Ants

Who would have thought that so much goes into breeding ants.

Typically the Queen in a normal colony or nest can product thousnds of larva and has all of her workers feeding the babies. As you can see from this picture below from this facility it is not so cut and dry in the lab setting.
