About Ants Canada

We believe ants are the most amazing creatures on the planet, and every new discovery about their micro world gives us some profound insights into the world around us and ourselves. Bringing the ant farm and love of ant keeping to a whole new level, we are dedicated to show the world the joys of keeping big and healthy pet ant colonies. Shipping worldwide since 2009, we are innovators of ant keeping products for ant lovers and museums alike.


AntsCanada is an organization promoting the pet ant keeping hobby, myrmecology, ecology, and habitat conservation. Its aim is to make pet ant keeping simple and enjoyable and thereby promote ant awareness and inspire conservation. It was founded by Michael Bustos in 2009 and has since shipped hundreds of thousands of formicaria (ant farms) and ant keeping gear worldwide, contributed to scientific research, and consulted with agricultural companies and museums. AntsCanada and its products have been featured on the Discovery Channel and Animal Planet. It also hosts the largest online ant community on Youtube and Facebook. Its main office is located in Toronto, Canada with its main manufacturing facilities in Salt Lake City, USA, Beijing, China, and Manila, Philippines.
