All in one design ant nest/formicarium for Live Ants is a Perfect Starter Kit for the beginner and evolved enough for the expert!
Includes the sand, plastic plants, rocks, pebbles, grout and complete instructions to form your own unique ant home! (picture is of a completed setup, you will need to build your own landscape with the items provided, the twig was added extra from my yard on mine)
I have spent a lot of time, research and trial and error since I have been an ant keeper and wanted to share my knowledge along in these new ant homes I have designed and made.
This internal nest is designed for small sized pavement ants up to medium sized ants and has the ability to start small and increase the living space as your colony grows simply by removing the partition pin to expose the larger second nest area. Both nest areas feature complete humidity control via a slide out drawer in the rear of the habitat. This allows you to remove the humidity material to re-moisten. This entire area is closed off from the ants by triple layer containment which includes a stainless steel micron mesh that even the smallest of ants cannot escape through.
Size of this all in one container is 5.25" square and 6" H
FEATURES: EXPANDING NEST AREA - Great for smaller growing colonies just starting up. Once they grow out of their initial space you can pull out the removable tab to reveal a 2nd larger area for lots of expansion room.
FULL HUMIDITY CONTROL in both nest sides via rear slide out drawer so you can re-hydrate or replace the media with ease and without disturbing your colony. (sponge media included!)
WATER SUPPLY - Hang on Back water supply that is easily removable and includes sponge to allow moisture and remove the risk of drownings. An extra sponge is also supplied. (this portal can also house your queen test tube prior to ant nest colonization) (Extra add on water tube with adapters are available as an add-on in the store)
EXPANDABLE - Attached portal adapter allows future expansion possibilities with 1/2" diameter tubing connections and caps so you can add additional nesting areas, habitats or just tubing tunnels!
MULTI LAYER reinforced mesh screens allow ventilation of the nest as well as humidity on rear of nest to ward off escapes.

We are constantly upgrading and tweaking our designs as we discover new ideas to make them better. Some of those ideas have come from our customers as well. Sometimes our pictures do not reflect these little changes but none of them will alter the design of the nest in any major way so what you see in the pictures is still very close to what you will receive.
Also the colors may vary slightly due to a few things like camera, lighting, internet browsers, monitor display of color and sometimes our supply of materials can change shades and hues
Please feel free to ask any questions prior to purchase as we do not offer refunds.
