20x20x1.5cm Acrylic nest with central foraging area and water tank included. It keeps higher humidity in the nest and provides improved visibility of the ants. Galleries are 1.5cm high, so it makes this nest suitable for any species (big as Camponotus or smaller as Lasius). It is divided in two independent areas, so you can distribute the colony depending on its size.
The water tank is anchored and fixed to the nest by two rubber bands and a special fastening system with very long screws, so you will be able to carry and move the nest without loss of functionality.
It has 2 water tanks at the bottom in permanent contact with the humidity system by a very tough mushroom-shaped plaster that allows humidity to reach the higher level. With this system humidity can be kept in the nest for weeks without adding water continuously.
To feed the ants, lift the lid of the foraging box. Be careful to prevent escapes.
Put the ants inside the nest through the foraging area. Pour out the content of the test tube directly into the foraging zone, always being extremely careful.
The nest has a hole used to connect another nest or an auxiliary foraging box. Remember to block it with cotton or with a 9/6mm rubber stopper (Anthouse.es).
Suitable for all types of species and sizes. For colonies with more than 15 workers of big species and 50 workers of small species.
NOTE: The mushroom is consumed over time. Its duration is approximately two years, so it is recommended to buy spares.
CAUTION: Don't clean with alcohol or another product but soapy water. The acrylic material could get broken. Don't even use talcohol (talcum powder dissolved in alcohol). If still used, it will be under the responsibility of the customer.
Warning: Maintenance of the ant nest is under responsibility of the customer. The wear and tear of the materials is not covered by warranty.
