WARNING: Remove the plastic protector before use.
You will receive the ants inside a test tube with food and water for two weeks. They were born inside the test tube and they are well there.
The 10x20x1,3cms Acrylic Ant's Nest Kit (MUSHROOM), water tank included, keeps higher humidity in the nest and provides improved visibility of the ants. Suitable for young colonies. Includes a 10x10 built-in foraging box with lid and humidity system.
It has a water tank at the bottom which is 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.
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.
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).
Easy to clean due to its anchors with screws. Suitable for all types of species and sizes, as long as they are not exceptionally big nor exceptionally small.
