Ant Farm Cube LA solid ant farm of plaster in a plastic cube. You can look around at all these Ant Farm. The ant farm is ideal to start. In addition, this version is very suitable for almost all ant species (especially for smaller species).
In the relief on top you can add a bit moisture to keep the nest a bit humid partly (once every few weeks). You can add the water with the supplied pipette or a spray bottle. This spray bottle is also available in the 'humidity' category on our website. The water then pulls into the plaster.
The upper part can also be used as 'Arena', however we recommend connecting a separate arena or feeding box so that you can feed more easily and clean up the colony's waste. At each arena and extra nest we supply free coupling materials (connecting hose etc).
ExpandableThis Ant farm is easy to connect to the other nest and outdoor areas via the 10 mm opening on the side. If you want additional openings, select the desired number. We then provide additional connection options.
Choice AntcolonyThis farm is suitable for almost all ant species. For larger colonies of species such as Camponotus (larger species with larger numbers) it is not suitable. We supply our colonies in a test tube and we supply connection materials to connect to the opening in the cube nest fo free. See the last photo for an example. A simple protective sleeve for protecting the colony in the test tube can be ordered in the attachments category on our website.
FeedingThe diet of a Lasius ant colony consists of a combination of sugar water, honeydew and fruit flies, and seeds are added to a Messor colony. A food set can be ordered above.
