Ant Farm Master Messor set

We can well imagine that making a choice is difficult when you see all the options for keeping ants as pets and all the available (care) products. That is why we have put together a special set that guarantees you an excellent starting point for this super fun hobby!

A sleek plaster Ant Farm forms the heart of this setup. A completely handmade, robust plaster nest, very solidly assembled.

The ant farm is specially designed with a unique moisture reservoir. You can regulate the humidity from the center of the nest with the supplied syringe. The chambers in the middle around the moisture reservoir are shallow (4mm), so you can clearly observe the center of your colony. The chambers on the outside are deeper (7mm), so that the workers can take care of their larger brood there. All rooms and corridors are connected to each other. Be amazed at how the ants use and decorate this space.

An opening has been made on either side to connect the Ant Farm to the nest tube with the colony and the feeding bowl or arena.

You understand that we have no choice but to call this the 'Master series' to name. We have devised these ant farms based on our years of experience in growing and caring for ant colonies.

Because these are handmade nests, the color and material may vary slightly per product. The photos give a clear picture.


Contents of this set

- Arena M (10x8x7 - 2 connection openings)

You cut the hose into parts and then make a nice arrangement yourself. The photo above gives an example. We always recommend connecting the colony to the arena so that the ants learn to get their food and take away waste there.
