Ants are found practically at every latitude. The number of species is estimated at around 12,000. There are 103 species of ants in Poland. In our store, we offer species of ants that, in our opinion, are worth observing and breeding, safe for the breeder. We do not offer aggressive species such as Paraponera clavata (Bullet ant) or invasive ants, pests such as pharaoh ant (Monomorium pharaonis) We also do not offer protected ants for sale.

The most recommended and popular ants for home ant breeding from Central and Southern Europe:

Lasius niger - so-called black ant;

Lasius flavus - a black-colored Queen ant with yellow workers

Camponotus ligniperda - the largest Polish ant and the largest ant in Europe

Formica fusca - a large and tough ant that causes no problems in ant breeding

Myrmica sp. - an ant recommended for breeding as polygyny (many queens in one colony)

Messor barbarus - our sales hit, an ant very popular due to the caste division and easy to breed.

Fascinating hobby- ant keeping

Ant keeping is a fascinating hobby that involves rearing and observing ants in an artificial environment. It has gained popularity in recent years, with enthusiasts building their own ant farms in homes all over the world. Starting an ant colony requires some basic knowledge of ant behavior and biology.

Ants are social insects that live in colonies headed by a queen. To start a colony, one needs to capture a queen. Queens can be found during their nuptial flight, which is a brief period when they mate and establish new colonies.Once a queen has been captured, she can be moved into a test tube where the first antworkers appear, later the colony can be replaced to the formicarium. The ant farm should be equipped with a suitable substrate for the ants to construct their nest, food and water sources, and a cover to prevent ants from escaping.
Ant keepers need to feed their colonies regularly and ensure that the temperature and humidity levels are kept within the desired range. Over time, the colony will grow in size, with the queen laying eggs and producing more workers.


Watching the ants go about their daily activities, such as foraging for food and caring for their young, can be mesmerizing. Ant keepers also enjoy observing the different behaviors exhibited by different ant species.
Overall, ant keeping is a rewarding hobby that provides insight into the fascinating world of ants. It requires patience, dedication, and a willingness to learn about these remarkable creatures and their complex societies.
