Amazon Availibility?

Hello AC crew, Do you think there's any chance we could get more products sold on Amazon or some other big sites? I know that right now, the Biome Kit Mini and the Small Ant Tower (Normal and Deluxe) are sold there. I would love to see some of the Hybrid nests and some of the other equipment on there. I Love all of you for what you are doing. Hope you have a great Easter. Stay alive out there.

I know this ain't an answer so this might be disappointing but I agree with you one million percent. I think amazon can boost this company as the current ant farms on amazon are literal pieces of absolute world hating nutri bar dumpster fires so I feel amazon should have AntsCanada. The shipping might be better too if all I want is a test tube!

I know, Last year I found 5 queens and I used rain measuring cylinders as test tubes. Even if we still have to pay shipping, I know at least for me that amazon gift cards are quite common. I'm not sure all the other ant farms are that bad, but I do think AC is better by far.

AntsCanada nets are by far the best designed nests I have ever seen. They hands down beat any other nests available on the market in terms of the usability, fexability, design and future proofing.
Saddly, I don't think I will ever buy one. Currently the shipping costs to me double the price of the nest *$130 shipping*.

Something else that the big M could always consider is selling the designs for people with access to 3D printers. I would happily pay as much as $50 for a hybrid nest model and print it myself.

I think that would open up the lane for people try to resell it.

Did consider that and I did original write something about having a contractual obligation or even a DMR setup. but then I removed it from the post because it seemed a little more complex than it needed to be.

Well Mikie would have to. But then it becomes a question of how involved does he want to get with it. I am very curious about where the nests are made, given that the website seems to be very US based. So I am wondering if its nests made over seas then warehoused in the US.
