Hi, I'm Charlie. I set up this website to provide affordable items to assist you in your ant keeping hobby.

The majority of our items are designed for ant keeping and are printed on a 3D printer. I am a keen ant keeper myself and when first looking for nests for my ants, I was faced with spending a large amount of money, plus international shipping costs. This made the previously very cheap hobby quite a lot more expensive.

So I set out to design and make products myself to house my ants in. This lead me to opening my shop so that other people could benefit from my designs whilst keeping the budget low.

I also take requests, so if you have a burning need for something and you can't find it elsewhere, please let me know and I can see what I can do!

This being said, if you see any of my current items and you wish for a different size/colour to what is currently on offer, please let me know and I can likely adjust the design to cater for your needs.

Thank you for reading!

Delivery

We deliver all over the world, but please note we do not cover customs or duty fees that your country may incur on packages at the border. Your order will be packed with the utmost care and attention.

All our UK orders are delivered via Royal Mail so please allow a couple of days for delivery. International orders may take a few days longer.

Live ants are only sold within the UK and will only be sent by next day delivery. We will also only dispatch live ant parcels from Mon-Wed, so if you order later than these days, we will wait until the following Monday to dispatch. This is to limit the time the ants are being handled and give the best chances of the ants arriving in the best health possible!

Please notify us of any problems or issues with your order by emailing enquiries@antfarmsupplies.com

I had expected something that'd last a season, but it seems really well made. I bought 2 products for a couple of small rubra queens. I have no doubt these could easily be used to house up to 100+ without much of a problem, the top sliding plastic fits really well, the test tubes fit really well too. My existing fit on the same. 1 test tube purchased from another company doesnt fit very well at all, I made it work though. Highly recommend this product to anyone who has just got a queen.

The order arrived quickly & my son quickly set it up with his 'Queen' who promptly (to our delight & surprise) laid her first eggs! Thanks so much. We'll be buying from you again. Your advice too is much appreciated. 😊
