Frequently Asked Questions
Who is AntBoyUK ?

We've been keeping ants for many years, and have been totally absorbed by the hobby. Since then we decided to create this store in order to provide fellow Myrmecologists with access to some awesome supplies which are often hard to find at the right price.
Our goal is to provide great products at low margins to help you have access to the best equipment, without breaking your bank account.
Where are you based ?
We are based in the UK, with all our nests and outworlds being designed and manufactored in-house. Orders are dispatched within 3-5 working days at peak times.
How do you ship items ?
All our items are shipped via Royal Mail tracked. You can choose first or second class at the checkout. A signature being required when your parcel is delivered, or you will be left a card to arrange re-delivery or collection.
Our P&P costs are exactly that, reflecting the cost of delivery and the packaging required to ensure that your goods arrive to you in perfect condition. We do not aim to make any profit from this.
All deliveries are tracked, and you will be provided with a tracking number upon dispatch.
Will you ship overseas ?
This is not a standard option on our store. If you are considering purchasing from outside the UK, please feel free to contact us for a shipping quote.
Are your formicariums and outworlds flat packed, or assembled ?
All of our formicariums and outworlds are fully assembled, and ready for you to use unless otherwise stated.
