Our Story

Welcome to Ant Antics. We are not like other ant stores. We do things differently here and we create experiences for both new and seasoned ant-keepers. From our unboxing experience to the love we give every single queen, we have earned our place as one the greatest in the business and if we are excluding modesty then we can say "we are the best at it"

Before we look into what started Ant Antics, below is one of the many online videos showing our brand and queen delivery.

It all started when we as keepers, ordered a queen from another company. The excitement of choosing our new species and the hours or making sure she was right for us before hitting "checkout" was followed by a few days waiting that felt like weeks. On arrival we received our new pet in a bubble envelope! with nothing other than the queen within.

This makes us sad. Your new pet should be an experience, something special and something unforgettable. It was on this day Ant Antics was formed. Our very name stands to put right the very antics in the industry that we aim to change. One customer at a time!

Buying from us means you will get the best service in the industry from people who genuinely care about our queens. You will have our support, access to our groups and community as well as the knowledge that your queen is responsibly raised, healthy and of the best quality.

Buying from Ant Antics is investing in a company who;

  • Is a registered limited company

  • was the first ant store in the UK to have both Employers and Public liability insurance

  • is one of the only stores that has a physical business location

  • has a place you can personally collect your queen

  • who created the first ever ANTCON, the only dedicated 100% ant convention in the UK. There is no other place in the uk for an ant convention only for ants.
