You are raising a new ant colony inside of a test tube but the ants keep escaping every time you remove the cotton to feed them. Sound familiar? This is a setup for young colonies when, you guessed it, the workers have outgrown their test tube. This type of all-in-one setup is usually considered temporary. Just remove the cotton ball from your test tube, place the tube inside of the setup, and close the lid. This is a good starting point before investing in a long-term nest. If you are going nuts trying to feed your expanding colony this is the setup for you!
Note: we highly recommend applying a thick layer of fluon to the top of the container, to keep the ants from escaping when the lid is removed.
8-3/8″ x 2-3/4″ x 2 3/8″
The queen and brood will still nest in the test tube as long as it still has water. If it runs out of water, you should replace the tube with a new one and move the queen and brood into it. We recommend providing water and byFormica Sunburst for the workers with our liquid feeders.
