For this setup, we have connected two medium nests and have added a large outworld. These spacious nests and outworld are a big hit with large species ants and established, large-size colonies. The nest and outworld are securely connected with a tube to allow the ants to leave the nest to forage for food.
10 x 8.5 x 6 inches. The outworld is 6 inches tall and the nest is 1.5 inches tall.
Humidity is achieved by adding a small amount of water, 2ml, twice per week to the lower portion of the nest using a blunt-tipped syringe. As the water evaporates, the moisture is absorbed into the nest which is made of a mold-resistant gypsum cement. It is important to not add too much water so it doesn’t become too humid. The water level should never touch the nest.
What Comes in the Box
- Custom-made nest and outworld similar to the ones shown in the pictures
- 1 Blunt-tip needle and syringe for inserting water at the base of the nest
We make nests and outworlds from scratch when an order is placed. It can take up to a week to ship this item. Feel free to add in the comments on the checkout page if you want the nest to look a certain way and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
