Very soon (within 1-2 weeks), I plan to begin my adventures into GAN. The only colony I will have immediately available with~40 workers will be Tapinoma sessile. Once my Camponotus subbarbatus and Nylanderia sp. queens get workers, they will be sold as well.

I just sent in the form to become a GAN farmer. Hopefully, I will have the ants for sale in a couple days.

No idea, the first one didn't go through and I just sent in my second application a few days ago. I'll try to keep this updated.

I just got accepted this morning. The two colonies I'm selling are Tapinoma sessile and a member of the Stennama genus. There is a typo on the site that says I have ten colonies of T. sessile available, but this isn't true. I only have one at the moment.

I definitely will within the week. Hopefully tonight. I would fill out the "Buy Ants" application on the AntsCanada website. Keep in mind, these are both some pretty small species.

Okay, pics will probably be available tomorrow. Is it possible for you to pick the ants up sometime before this Thursday? I'm leaving on vacation Wednesday.
