Ant Farm Premium Gypsum

The unique environment to study an ant colony. A high quality handmade gypsum nest.  surrounded by 2 deluxe acrylic sheets on the front and back that are securely mounted with 6 screws (see photo).

The farm is perfect for antcolonies like Lasius, Myrmica, Messor, Formica and Camponotus. This gypsum antfarm can be placed horizontally, vertically, in portrait or landscape. There are four connection options for connecting other nests or arenas. We recommend using one of the openings to keep the nest slightly damp with included pipette.

The set is expandable by connecting tubes to other stays. Because they are handmade nests, the color and the material can vary slightly by product. The photos give a clear picture.

Choice Ant Colony

A Lasius niger colony can grow herein to a thousand ants. A Messor barbarus to several hundred. This ant is a bit bigger and has different formats within the nest (minor / major). you can select a colony of Lasius or Messor above at a discount price.
