Ant Keepers in Florida

Post: # 20803Post AntsAreAwesome

Hello! I live in south Florida. I was wondering if anybody would want some Brachymyrmex queens and/or a Solenopsis invicta queen for cheap prices or would like to trade queens or colonies. Tell me if you live near and would want some. I would need proof of address. I would preferably like to trade queens if you have something like pheidole. Really anything but Solenopsis invicta or Brachymyrmex I would like to trade.
Keeper of:
2x Solenopsis invicta (1x founding)
4x Brachymyrmex patagonicus (4x founding)
1x Pheidole Sp. (1x founding)

Past Colonies:
2x Brachymymex
30x Solenopsis invicta (never catch that many it was a mistake ;) )

Bwahaha :lol: very funny. Do you live in Florida? I saw you posted about building a trench. Good idea. I see you too are catching a lot of Brachymyrmex and solenopsis queens. I love them but am tired of them. The only queens I have now that I am looking forward to is my pheidole queen who is currently doing decent. She finally piled her eggs and is taking care of them. I checked on her today and the eggs looked like they are larva now but they are to small lol. I also have 4 colobopsis queens but they all seem to infertile, as they where all caught in the same area and they all have wings. Sad story. Anyways the same question, do you live in Florida? If so what part?

Just going to bump in here and say hello. I'm in Lakeland and I may need a queen. I have a invicta or geminata queen. I'm not sure which but I have both species in my yard. Anyhow, if she doesn't work out, I'll need a queen. I have nothing to trade (this will be my first colony), but I'll pay for it if I do end up needing one. 😀

Alright. I'm not greedy so I won't make you pay much if I do charge ;). You might have to be willing to travel though...I am in southern Florida. I did notice that their is someone in fort Myers selling an invicta, but for $50. I have Brachymyrmex as well, and they are easier, but they are really small. I made the mistake of making fire ants my first real colony and I had a hard time. Now I love them though. :lol: just PM me anytime or post here.
