Acrylic Ant Farm 15x10

A very sleek ant farm made of acrylic. The transparency is sublime and the finish is top quality.

This ant farm is suitable for both small as mid-sized colonies of ant types such as Lasius, Myrmica, Pheidole, Messor and Formica. These nests are supplied with a foam section that keeps the nest moist for about 1 to 2 weeks. To moisten the nest, wet the foam (with the pipette provided) and ensure that the moisture spreads to a couple of the rooms. It absorbs and distributes moisture without the risk of the chambers and gangways getting flooded. The foam has to be kept moist to ensure that the ants enjoy the right type of environment in this nest.

The system is very practical because of this unique water supply. Even cleaning the complete Ant Farm is possible. First, attach another residence or nest tube for the ants to move to, after which it is simple to unscrew the acrylic nest and to rinse it with water.

The nest can be easily expanded by using the 8-mm opening on the outside. Tubes will allow you to add other residences.

We recommend connecting a separate arena or feeding box so that you can feed more easily and clean up the colony's garbage. At each arena and extra nest we supply free coupling materials (connecting hose etc).

Ant colony

Virtually every type of ant colony can be kept in this nest. Choose a colony above, at a special offer price.

 

Feeding set

The diet of a Lasius ant colony consists of a combination of sugar water, honeydew and fruit flies. For a Messor or Pheidole colony, seeds are added to this. A feeding set can be ordered above.
