Leaf Cutter colonies of any size, hand delivered to you, anywhere in the World. Design and Construction of Public displays, consultation and training, international shipping, paperwork and customs clearance provided.
At LeafCuttingAnts.com we specialise only in Atta and Acromyrmex ants. As a result we have travelled the world installing colonies of these ants. We are also partnered with www.tropicalhouse.co.uk, a company that designs and builds zoo style exhibits in zoos, butterfly gardens, corporate settings and private enthusiasts. So we can provide you not only with the best ants, the best advice and the best service, we can also help you turn your ant colony into a massive attraction for your establishment.
This web site will let you see how a display of Leaf Cuttings Ants can leave a lasting impression on your visitors.
I can send colonies of ants to you world wide but I would rather bring them to where ever you are. That way I can make sure they are healthy and settled and you know, when I leave, that everything is perfect.
Once you have read our pages here why not contact me at the Contact Us page and discuss your requirements either by email or by phoning directly. I very much look forward to hearing from you.
We Collect from the Wild
All our colonies would otherwise be destroyed by farmers. They are all less than 18 months old unless extra large colonies are requested. Colonies are taken to our dedicated facility in Trinidad where they are settled and established before shipping
When the fungus has recovered and the ants are feeding, normally after around a week, we check them carefully and then arrange for them to be shipped back to the UK.
Our Ants are legally and ethically shipped.
We conform to IATA regulations when packing our ants for travel. The reason we have been so successful with Leaf Cutting Ants is because we always collect and ship them ourselves and do not use third parties. We can supply all import and customs documents on request.
Our Holding Facility in UK
When the ants arrive back in the UK they are housed in our quarantine facility which is specially designed to generate stable temperature and high humidity. The walls are glass and so the humidity reaches 90%+ ! We care for them until sold.
We Build Displays
We design escape proof low maintenance exhibits
Our team of manufacturers builds the unit on site, world wide!
We can theme with rockwork, art work etc
We will hand deliver the ants and install into your display.
Where ever you are we can visit you and deliver the ants. We can train your keepers. If your colony is being housed into one of our own displays and we deliver to you so we can install it and train your staff, we will then give you a guarantee for 6 months during which time we will replace your colony if it dies
All our Leaf Cutting Ant Colonies Ants are ethically sourced!
Buy from ethical sources. Our colonies are collected from agricultural land where, under normal circumstances, the farmers spray the ants prior to planting their crops. We pay the farmers not to do this so we bring colonies back to the UK that would otherwise be destroyed. Also all of our colonies are accompanied by the relevant paperwork to show they have been legally imported and safely transported. Border Inspection documentation, vets certificate and Entry into EU paperwork are available for your records at the point of supply.
