I don't know much about that place. All I know is Gel Farms suck!


Why is a Myrmica rubra queen so much?!

I don't think you'll have much success in obtaining a replacement queen from them as they categorically state that they only guarantee the ants arrive alive, but not what your queens do once in your care.

I wouldn't give up on her just yet. Do you have wild Lasius niger colonies near you? You could try brood boosting.

Right Shocked probably because the demand is there maybe. Myrmica rubra is quite a popular species no?

Sorry, was going to reply to this yesterday Dermy but I forgot Embarassed I guess as long as there's a market people will exploit it for a profit...I've seen Atta Queens for sale at nearly £300 each! P.S. I'm not saying this is right or wrong, just that people will buy them for a variety of reasons.
