Why buy from Tar Heel Ants?
-Queens are hand picked from dozens of queens to be the strongest in number of brood and most actively producing queens.
-Founded in the highest quality settings using our Genesis Inserts and Devolve Chambers.
-Did we already say hand-picked from many queens available? This needs to be emphasized so I will repeat, we hand-pick yours from the best of dozens of colonies.
What comes in the package? Fallen Fortress formicarium, Camponotus pennsylvanicus colony, all accessories for the formicarium as chosen via options, and care guide for this species based on our experiences with our two older colonies of 4 and 6 years of age.
Is there a Warranty?
Warranty: The delivery of these ants alive is guaranteed. Having said that, you are expected to make arrangements to be available to receive your ants if the temperature is too warm or too cold on the day of arrival. If there is any problem with delivery you must contact us immediately by email or phone. After the ants arrive we cannot guarantee their survival but have prepared a guide that will be mailed with your ants. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with comments or questions.
If your queen does not arrive alive please be prepared to provide evidence (this is required for replacement) and answer a few short questions so we can try to understand what may have gone wrong during shipping. Problems are very rare but when they do occur contact us by email or phone (919) 348-3642.
How are they shipped?
There are several layers of protection to help protect your queen(s) during shipping. In all cases they are shipped inside our proprietary genesis inserts to keep them safe from drowning and protect their brood during shipping. During warm conditions we will ship them ice packs. They come inside a puncture resistant tube as well.
