About Myrmecocystus navajo:

American Species- Honeypot ants (found in USA)

Description: Myrmecocystus navajo are a desert species from America. They're a very unique and large species of ant due to the way they produce repletes which are workers that are used as food storage. They fill their gasters up to larger than a grape-like size with nectar and hang upside down from the ceiling of their nest.

Myrmecocystus navjo are very similar to giant golden honeypots (but they are cheaper and easier for kids to handle!)

Golden Honeypot Ants are one of the prettiest Myrmecocystus species in USA because their golden abdomen is translucent, allowing you to see the color of nectar they ate. They can be slow-growing in the founding stages but soon pick up the pace as they mature. 

Diet: Water (at all times), Nectar, and Protein - like fresh-killed insects

Sizes: Queen- 12mm. Workers are around 6- 10mm. Huge storage ants about 12mm. 

For Beginners? Yes! They are very easy to take care of, and are great to observe.

Guaranteed Safe Arrival? YES!

Getting started with a queen ant ‚Äď the perfect choice for anyone who is interested in getting into the fascinating world of ant keeping! And if you're a beginner,¬†getting¬†a queen ant is a great way to start your ant farm without worries of them dying. Here are some of the benefits of buying a queen ant for a first-time ant keeper:

  1. Start Your Ant Colony Off Strong: A queen ant is responsible for laying all the eggs that will eventually become workers, soldiers, and other members of the colony. Without a queen, your ant farm will not survive for very long, and will slowly die out. You can watch as the queen communicates with her workers, lay eggs, and coordinates the colony's activities. This provides a much richer and more rewarding experience than just keeping worker ants.
  2. Fertilized Queen Ant Guaranteed: When you get your own queen ant, we make sure it is fertilized for you! After a queen is fertilized, it does not have to mate for the rest of its life! We hand-pick queen ants with desirable traits, such as productivity and being injury-free. This can help ensure that your colony thrives and is well-suited to your particular environment.
  3. Long-Term Ant Farm: A colony with a queen ant will live much longer than one without. This is because the queen is laying eggs, which hatch into larvae and then into adult ants. With a queen, you can expect your colony to be sustainable and live in your ant farm for 4-6 years! These ants will not overwhelm you as the queen produces eggs slowly, just enough for you to enjoy the experience of a long-term ant farm!
  4. More Social Interaction: When you keep worker ants, you're missing out on a lot of the social interaction that makes ant keeping so fascinating. With a queen ant, you can watch as she communicates with her workers, distributes tasks, and coordinates the colony's activities.

Now, let's talk about the queen ants that we carry. Most of the ants we carry are a great choice for a first-time ant keeper, and buying a queen ant from this species is an excellent investment. Here's why:

  1. Easy Care: Queen ants are easy to care for, making them a great choice for beginners. They do not require any special equipment or complicated setups, and they are not picky eaters. They will happily eat a variety of foods, including insects, fruit, and sugar water. This means that you can start your ant colony with minimal investment and still keep them healthy and happy.
  2. Hardy Species: Queen Ants are a hardy species of ant. They are able to adapt to different environments and can withstand fluctuations in temperature and humidity (room-temp is ideal). This means that they are less likely to die off due to unforeseen circumstances, such as a sudden change in weather or a power outage in your house. Slowly grow out your colony without worries of an uncertain death.
  3. Beautiful Coloration: Queen Ants are known for their striking red coloration. They are a beautiful and unique addition to any ant colony, and they are sure to provide you with hours of entertainment as you watch them explore and build their tunnels and chambers.

In conclusion, buying a Queen Ant is an excellent choice for anyone who is interested in getting into ant keeping. 

 With their easy care requirements, hardiness, and beautiful variuos coloration, getting started with a queen Ants are the perfect species to start your ant-keeping adventure with. So why wait? Order your queen ant today and start your colony off right with a great discount!
