"When my ant colony grew out of their test tube i wanted to provide them with the ideal new home. After careful consideration and browsing through shops i decided to order from AntsCanada, because to me the products of the European stores couldn't keep up with the beauty and functionality of the habitat nests offered here.
The purchase process was short and convenient. My lasius niger colony has already moved into their new habitat. Their life quality has increased notedly; the new nest is both easy to manage and a real pleasure to look at. I really fell in love with the concept of these habitats and can highly recommend them. I also want to thank the AntsCanada team since they were so engaged and helpful through the whole time. All the best from Vienna. Weiter so! :)"

"As an elementary school teacher, I am constantly looking for ways to engage my students, especially in the subject of science. So, I was excited at the thought of having a formicarium in my classroom. After contacting Mikey from AntsCanada, I was surprised to find out that not only would I be receiving a formicarium, but AntsCanada also offered an in-class education program where Mikey would present to my class. Overall, Mikey's presentation was entertaining, engaging, informative, and fun! My students were fascinated with the formicarium, and the entire class loved observing the ants. It was wonderful to see the excitement on my students' faces. I find that having a formicarium in the classroom brought to life concepts that were taught in class. In my opinion, AntsCanada formicariums are perfect for the classroom!"

""Iím living in Thailand. It was very hard for me to find the good quality of ant formicariums, tools and etc. here. Also most of the overseas shops wonít ship to Thailand. First time I came across the AntsCanada website. I found that all the products in this website really look interesting. So I decide to order the pumice stone, Habitat Nest and Outworld together with the Ant Collectorís Kits. The products were arrived here on time as they promises. The pumice stone nests are unique and good quality as they said in the website. The Habitat nest and Outworld are really beautiful and suitable for my ants. I like how they design and decorate them. Its really looks natural and nice for me. Iím also impress with the workbook that came with the antís collector kits. The book really useful and I bet you all cannot find it anywhere else. Lastly, even they shipped to a very far destination, the products still in good shape and quality as they said in the website.
Apart from their amazing products, their customer services team are really nice and friendly !!! I think I emailed them and asked so many times. Even my English is not good, even our times are difference, they tried to understand my English and replied me within a day everytime! They are very good at take caring of customers. They really want us to receive the best quality and most update of their products. (They actually email and give me the updated version of workbook during my order is on the way to make sure that I receive the lastest version of their book !!)
Iím very impress with the AntsCanada shop and website !! Thank you! I promise I will recommend this to my friend and will order your products again for sure !!! Wish you have a very very good business!! AntsCanada !!!"

"I stumbled upon the AntsCanada website by accident and was immediately impressed with the look of their products. I contacted the store with some questions which were answered very quickly. I can honestly say I don't think I have ever dealt with a company displaying as much passion as Mike and his team. Every question I had was answered in under 24hours. I cannot praise their customer service enough. Also its worth mentioning that the amount of information made available to you via the stores YouTube channel is second to none.
I purchased one large and one small Habitat Nest. The products were very well packed and secured in the packaging. The nests themselves are stunning, the pictures from the website do them no justice at all! The nest interior is very well crafted, I'm really looking forward to my colony upping sticks and moving out of their test tube! The nests are very sturdy and well constructed. A really fantastic product, well designed and visually pleasing.
Thanks for all your help!"

"When I first got Antscanadaís habitat nest, I noticed its perfection right away. The design and engineering that went into the nest is both high quality and beautiful. The nests offer everything you need to maintain large colonies such as its moisture retention, naturalistic style and clarity. My Camponotus semitestaceus moved in immediately and is currently making great use of the nest. I recommend them for anyone looking to buy top tier formicariums."

"I have known 'AC' or Mikey a while now, after meeting him on an ant forum I have watched him develop brilliant, beautiful mold resistant Formicaria and outworlds since he had the smart idea of making his own company. In doing so I got more and more intrigued and overwhelmed with the passion and effort he puts into his products and ants in general.
Seeing as I keep a foreign species (Camponotus flavomarginatus) to where I live I only want the best and most "escape proof'' formicaria I can find, and when I saw 'The Cavernous nest' it blew me away, for it not only adds the naturalistic feeling but also offers huge amounts of space and viewing possibilities. And I must say it is a great nest to keep ants in, all I had to do was ask Mikey to add a few dry spots, deep spots and wet spots and in a couple of weeks it was on my desk and the ants were exploring.
In conclusion I highly recommend Mikey/AntsCanadas nests,out worlds,tube connectors and all the rest of his amazing products for I have never seen such dedication and perseverance in a man/woman in my life. And I promise you that anything you buy off him will be the best thing you can get worldwide."

The pumice Stone ant nest is way more wonderful then I expected! My Formica sp. queen has taken a wonderful liking to it and already has a healthy looking brood she is caring for!

Jack - Ilkeston (England)
"The transaction with the AntsCanada was very good! They shipped fast and it got here in 6 days from Canada to America! It would have been 5 days actually but I wasn't home to receive it yesterday! The team there was nice and answered all the questions I had! I am amazed on how well it absorbs water! It's fun to watch the water travel through the soakstone! I have 1 of the nests attached to the current plaster nest and I have already had ants come check it out! The nests are very appealing to the eye too! They look way more professional than the old plaster nest! I can't wait to have people over to see how good they look compared to the plaster nest! Thanks so much AntsCanada! You're running a very good business! You will help many ant keepers in North America and even get people started in ant keeping!"

"The Habitat nest and the outworld are amazing! They look super realistic and I can't wait to have my ants use the outworld for the first time! Thank you sooo much! [My adopted Crematogaster queen] seems to be right on top of her brood. I'm yet to count the eggs."
Norbert - Toronto, Ontario (Canada)
"I just recently received my first Habitat nest and Outworld from Antscanada.com. I couldn't be happier, and I will tell you why. My initial plans for the new Formicarium, were to house a small colony of Pogonomyrmex, otherwise known as Harvester ants. The Antscanada team personally recommended the appropriate design to purchase without hesitation. And gave me all the proper instructions through detailed emails, even before I made a purchase. They were so helpful, even with my seemingly ignorant questions. They all seemed just as excited, or even more excited about my colony than I thought I was. Their expertise is so inviting, and they boost your confidence in providing the ideal setup for ants. Every question is answered, and if Mikey and his team don't know the answer, they will tell you where to find it. But here is where things get interesting. At the last moment, after my Formicarium had already been built and was ready for shipment, I had a radical change of plans. I acquired a new queen ant, of a different species, with much different housing requirements. I emailed the store not expecting a change in my order, but perhaps a suggestion for another habitat. However, Mikey personally went to the warehouse, and located a different Formicarium for the needs of my new queen. I didn't even have to ask. Now that's customer service. I have never come across a design that is so easy to set up, water, and that has so much viewing area. There is no mold growth, and my nest is truly a work of art. I strongly recommend all of Antscanada's products. These people are 100% devoted to the ant keeping hobby, and spreading their vast knowledge of ants to anyone who requires it. I'm a customer for life. Thank you Antscanada!"

"My P. Californicus love your large habitat nest, coupled with the micro habitat outworld. It is a very pretty addition to the room. All my friends come in to take a look at them every time they come over. The soak stone material is awesome also! I will definitely buy from AntsCanada again!"

"My wife and I run the biggest ant forum in the UK with 910 members worldwide, which is called Ant Hill World; and I have placed a link to your site on the forum today. I have just recently found your site, and I must say it is great to find you are selling some good Formicariums and ant collecting equipment."
Allan, Owner of Ant Hill World UK - Sussex (England)
"I have been an ant keeper for about 11 years off and on. Just in the past few years I have gotten into keep colonies with queens and really becoming an active member of the ant community and taking my anting to a professional level. I was in the market for a professional formicarium to house my ants that was not only functional but also looked good in my office. After watching all the great Youtube videos from Antscanada I knew I had to go to their website and look into their products. I can tell you I am so happy I did! They had an awesome selection and great product support! After receiving the first nest I ordered I must say I was more then impressed. The workmanship and care taken to hand make the nest was phenomenal, you could tell Antscanda really loved the produces they sold. On my second order my item arrived broken, but after a quick e-mail, a new nest was on its way. Mikey Bustos personally handle and made the new nest! All I can say is customer service is A+ and the products themselves are the best I have ever seen. Both of my nests have been in use for 5 months and not only do I love the style and function of them but my Camponotus floridanus colonies love them too!
Yet another satisfied customer"
Nick - Clearwater, Florida (U.S.)
"Energy, passion, business/personal moralities and dedication are the key criteria I put forth when I move forward in my participation in any of my many past and future ventures. When Mikey approached me with his initial and creative proposal taking a life-long passion of ant keeping into a business that would share his knowledge and caring of ants on an international basis, his incredible innovative designs, manufacturing of the products and his drive to share as well as communicate his knowledge with others, the decision to participate was effortless. Coming from a person who knew VERY little about ants from the on-set, he has truly been able to educate and communicate where his love of the species come from to bring me to the point where I am now searching and eagerly awaiting his posts, videos, links and new research & development of company products....... I am now a new ant enthusiast and proud of it !!"
