Live Ants for Ant World


Regular price £3.00 £3.00 Sale

Product code: ANTS

The common black ant (Lasius niger) found almost everywhere in the UK and beyond. We supply female worker ants (sisters). They don't lay eggs, bite, sting or bark at the postman. What's not to like? Ideal inhabitants for Ant World. Child-friendly.

Ants are dispatched in a Magnifier Bowl with a small amount of compost. The padded envelope will fit easily through a normal letterbox.

They are usually posted within two working days of receiving an order. We use Royal Mail 24 to deliver your ants, so they should be delivered a day or two after dispatch.

 Please read our ant policy before ordering:

- We only dispatch ants Monday-Thursday - any orders placed after 2pm on Thursday will be most likely dispatched on the following Monday. 

- We do not offer Overnight Courier Saturday Deliveries. Any overnight courier orders placed after 3pm on Thursday will be dispatched on Monday for delivery on Tuesday.

- Each pot of ants is manually gathered from our nests just before dispatching, if there is a huge volume of orders (i.e. after Christmas or a Bank Holiday Weekend) there may be delays.

 - We do not send ants in freezing or too hot weather conditions. They will be sent the next suitable working day.

Ants can survive in their pots for around a week from the date of dispatch before needing fresh air, water and food. Please do not leave them for longer than this, and schedule your order accordingly. We still recommend attaching them to an Ant World ASAP.

Please do not mix with ants from other colonies, as they will fight!
