Welcome To AntlionFarms.com!

Hi, My name is Artie!

I am an ant lion, and I’ll be your host on AntlionFarms.com. If you are wanting to learn all about ant lions and purchase ant lion kits then you have come to the right place.

What is an ant lion you ask? 
I’m not an ant, and I’m not a lion. Have you ever heard of a “doodlebug”? A doodlebug is actually an ant lion in the larval or baby stage. We get the name ant lion because we are voracious predators of ants and other insects.

Do ant lions make good pets?
Antlions are some of the coolest insects around. When you have an ant lion for a pet, you get a front row seat to one of nature’s wildest battles. It’s Survival of the Fittest, Baby! And ant lions rule! Ant lions are not only entertaining, but also very educational. You can learn about how insects think, learn, and respond to their environment. If you are looking for a pet that is easy to keep and entertaining for the whole family, then maybe ant lions are for you!

A Few Words About Us

Ian Skelley has been providing customers with ant lions for 20 years.

Ian originally started with the idea of selling ant lion zen gardens on Ebay. The goal was to expose people to the wonderful world of the ant lion. Since the beginning, we have had customers such as the Smithsonian, colleges, and grade schools. People have even written books about our ant lions.

What started as a fun little project has turned into a small family business.  A few years ago, his nephew Hudson and niece Jenna began working with him.  Today they run most of the day-to-day operations of the business.  Their goal is to help you have the best experience with your ant lions!

I have many grandchildren, and we play in the yard all the time. I ran into a former colleague who is still teaching, and uses Ant Lions all the time in his education courses. I plan to spend this summer and the next few years raising them with the babies, and admiring their behavior!
