  Leaf Cutting Ant Complete Nests For Sale




 

Hi, By way of introduction, most of the colonies of Atta cephalotes and Acromyrmex octospinosis sold around Europe over the past 10 - 15 years have been originally collected by me. I spend a great deal of time setting up large scale colonies in zoos and public displays around the world and I am regularly contacted by institutions who keep these species for advice and input. The prices are quite high and this reflects the cost of personally obtaining them and transporting them safely and legally. Each colony will be supplied with a set of paperwork showing their ethical and legal transportation from the tropics including customs and border clearance documents. No damage whatsoever has resulted from the process of their removal from the wild. Farmers in the area we work normally poison the colonies prior to planting crops. We pay them not to and they keep them for us. Therefore all of the colonies we sell would otherwise be dead. As always the colonies are in very good condition. I currently have all sizes of both species available. Also I am able to supply all display cases and life support systems as required as well as comprehensive advice on an ongoing basis post sale. Please note, these are fully established colonies. Many places are offering Queens without fungus. I get contacted all of the time by people trying to get fungus to start a colony with a Queen. Although the Queens alone are cheap when available I absolutely do not advise that this is a good buy, 95% of the Queens offered are either unmated or not viable and will die.
