Collection: Beginner Ants

Of course, we sell a large variety of queen ants and ant colonies from species occurring or documented in Canada. To be clear, all species listed below have been obtained and are being sold legally. Below is a list of our selection of ants fit for a first-time ant-keeper.

Please note the filters which can help you narrow down your search by size, difficulty, hibernation requirements, ability to produce soldiers (polymorphic), ability to have colonies with multiple queens (polygynous), as well as availability of various colony sizes.
