www.leafcuttingants.com are offering colonies of leaf cutting ants for general sale in UK. Outwith UK we supply public displays such as zoos, museums etc, as well as resellers. If you are outwith the UK and wish to buy a colony of leaf cutters please contact us with your location and we will tell you where your nearest stockist is located or if we can supply you ourselves. If you are still to build your display, please take a look at our here to clarify what kind of exhibit would best suit your needs.
All our colonies are collected as small nests from the wild when they are approximately 8 months to 1 year old. At this stage they have a fungus garden around the size of a golf ball, around 100 workers, a queen and visible brood. Sizes larger than this are reared by us at our UK facility.
All colonies are imported legally into the EU, they are supplied with paperwork to show ethical and legal collection and transportation, and they are fully quarantined.
Our colonies are not collected from the rainforest or any un spoilt area. We pay farmers not to spray their fields in the areas we collect from. We visit several times each year and harvest the colonies. In this way the farmers earn extra money for something that was previously a drain on their yield and we are able to offer colonies of leaf cutters for sale that otherwise would have been destroyed. A truly ethical, sustainable source of supply.
