Ant Colony Farm
Looking to start your own ant colony? Introduce yourself to the ant world with this amazing Ant Farm!
Ant farms are a great tool for observing the behaviour of a unique, community-oriented insect. While it is impossible to fill your kit with an entire colony of ants with a queen, your harvester ants will still offer a fascinating glimpse of ant behaviour.
How do I start my Ant Colony?
The best way to stock your ant colony is to farm your own colony from a single queen Ant captured in your area during mating season. Capturing a newly mated queen Ant is the first step, as she will be the seed that will perpetuate your colony for years.
You can also attempt to collect an already mature wild colony but finding the queen can be difficult, and there is the possibility the whole colony might not be able to adapt to captivity well.
In the world of ant keeping, farming your own colony from a single queen is the best method, and often times the most rewarding. Continue reading below for tips on catching a queen ant.
The ants only last a few months too, making them good starter pets for kids whose parents aren’t yet sure they’re up to the task.
A very solid ant farm made out of acrylic. The transparency of this product is sublime and the finish of top quality.
The farm is perfectly suited for small and medium-sized colonies of species like Lasius, Myrmica, Pheidole, Messor, and Formica.
This ant farm is equipped with a foam part, which holds the nest about 1 to 2 weeks moist. To moisten the nest, you can make the foam wet by using the included pipette. It absorbs and disperses moisture without the risk of flooding the rooms and corridors.
The foam must remain moist so that the ants can nestle well in the farm.
This system of water supply is unique and handy. Even the cleaning of this complete ant farm is possible. It is easy to unscrew the acrylic farm and rinse with water. So you can always reuse it.
