Here at The Ant Lab we are looking to partner ourselves with other ant keepers/collectors with the same values and drive for the hobby.
We seek to be able to provide and revitalise the domestic Australian ant keeping market.
By supplying the widest range of native ants at the lowest prices!
We are part of "team native", this means we will never export our wonderful native ants and absolutely never import ants from overseas.
Not only is the postage overseas unethical with high death rates, but it also puts other country's ecosystems at risk. Similar to how we now have almost unstoppable invasive species that are decimating entire regions.
By supporting us you will help keep Australia safe and not exploit our native wildlife for unethical monetary gains.
We want to work alongside our catchers to help supply us with as many species from all over the continent.
And we want to establish working relationships with each of you.
We understand nothing annoys a catcher like a 1000% mark up on an ant you sold to another store.
We also want you to come back to us first each time you catch a bounty of queens.
We want you to catch and store queens where they will be most comfortable.
If you have nothing to store and transport them in, your less likely to catch them.
Having a big sale means discounts for all customers.
If you are after a specific items we can discount at what ever time you choose to purchase, sometimes at cost price!
Are you an avid collector of rare hard to find species?
Let us track down your wish list for you!
We already have catchers in Every state and will let them know what your after.
We want you to walk away from every transaction happy with what you were paid for your time. We offer up to 30% of our sales prices for queens, but will always drop our prices if we can obtain them for less meaning greater savings to others and growth within the hobyb.
We will notify you if other catchers within you local area let us know of flying species to save you time and missing out. We will also endeavour to help Identify and workers and queens that you come across out in the field and work with you on their flight times and keeping info.
