    I've always been fascinated with ants, and have done quite a bit of research on them and quite fancy trying my hand at keeping them. Unfortunately I cant find anywhere that sells the more exotic species in the UK. Doesnt look like Antstore (Germany) exports to the UK. :(

    I don't have a clue about ants, but I've just found an Italian online shop that sold those, ah ah :hilarious:

    Ah, Brexit screwing you over.

    Serves you right--the US has strict enough import laws on ants that you can't keep non-native or invasive ants period :hilarious:

    There's ants kalytta--they're also German, but might they export to Britain?

    Well I found a site called Antsrus and ordered myself a H Venator queen plus a handful of workers! I feel like an eleven year old again! Cant wait! :)
