Description: The Anthouse Wall Kit Big is formed by a sandwich made of Acryl and a foraging box made of the same material. Both items have two hooks to be hung on the wall and the sides are covered in cork. The sandwich is connected to the foraging box via a flexible tube. The foraging area is used to put the food and as a dump for the ants.


Installation: Installation is easy. Put the brown sand into the sandwich. Don't forget to wet the sand before you put the ants inside the nest.

Caution: You don't have to wet all the sand, just a part of it, as we run the risk of getting a muddy place for the ants if we moisten it all. For example, about 5-10ml of water would be enough, depending on the time of the year (higher temperatures involve more vaporisation). The amount of water needed may vary because of the temperature. You must control it in a logical way. Don't forget to keep, at least, part of the sand wet.

Then, connect the sandwich and the foraging box using the connection tube, and block with some cotton the connection holes that are not in use to prevent escapes.

Once you have the kit ready, you can make a small hole in the sand with a stick to make easier for the ants the construction of the galleries. Then you can put the ants inside the ant nest, pouring out the content of the test tube directly into the sandwich. Everything done with maximum care and, if possible, near the hole you previously made. This way when they fall over the sand they have a refuge.

It's very important to put the food near the ants. Don't hesitate to put the food as close as possible to the hole or area where the ants are. Be careful and prevent the sand from getting dirty. You can check if the ants eat by observing whether its gaster (backside) is swollen or not, because ants store food as a reserve inside a social stomach.

You can use a layer of sand, some rocks, etc, as decoration inside the foraging box.


If the colony is small the ants might not use the foraging box. That's because small colonies, by nature, don't go far away from the ant nest to prevent being attacked. So, if the ants don't use the foraging area, take a small and flat piece of aluminum paper, put it over the sand to keep it clean and put food and water on it. Place it as close as possible to the ants. Easy access to food and water is vital for the ants. Keeping the sand clean is very important too because organic debris can get rotten and cause diseases.


Food (generic data): Ants do not eat solid food, only watery food. All substances such as honey, protein syrup, pasta, etc... must be well mixed with water before giving it to the ants. This food must be removed the next day. Don't forget ants need protein to live. They can find protein in insects, meat, animal products, etc... or in seeds for the seed eater species.

Suitable for ant colonies with more than 50 workers in small species or 25 in big species.
