Feeding Caps for Test Tube Ants

(2 customer reviews)


Ant Gear Feeding Caps are a stress-reducing addition to test tube setups, fitting seamlessly to minimize mess during ant feeding.

Product Description

When managing an ant colony in a test tube, feeding them can pose quite a challenge. The limited space within the tube necessitates the removal of old food using tweezers, but the element of surprise is long gone. The ants catch wind of your intentions, sometimes even preparing for escape. Your subsequent task involves delicately placing a cricket piece inside the tube using tweezers and then resealing it with cotton. With nimble ants, it doesn’t take much time for the entire workforce to make a swift exit, never to return. Here at Ant Gear Headquarters, we’ve faced these issues ourselves, which inspired us to create these feeding caps. Here’s what we believe these caps can do for you:

  1. Maintain test tube cleanliness.
  2. Prevent escapes.
  3. Easy to insert.
  4. Stays securely in place until the next feeding.
  5. Easy to clean, 3D-printed with flexible plastic (TPU)


Prepare the cap by adding blocking cotton, a deceased cricket or mealworm fragment, and a small droplet of sweet liquid. Before the ants catch on, swiftly replace the old cap with the new one! The feeding cap is now securely in position, offering you the element of surprise during the swap. Furthermore, this aids in maintaining the cleanliness of the test tube.


These caps fit the test tubes we sell here.
