Ant Cave – Formicarium

£19.99

The Ant Cave is a Cave-like founding chamber which can be used for any species, but designed for Honeypot ants as it emulates a desert cave and holds heat and humidity well as well as providing hanging points on the roof of the nest.

It offers easy access to add water to the nest as well as strategically placed grooves to hold a heat cable. The heat at the bottom of the nest will aid in maintaining the heat in the nest, and the heat for the top of the nest aids in maintaining humidity as well as keeping condensation down.

Ideal for colony size: Founding to 100 workers

Colony size >100 workers would preferably need an extension nest (coming soon!)

Description

The Ant Cave is a Cave-like founding chamber which can be used for any species, but designed for Honeypot ants as it emulates a desert cave and holds heat and humidity well as well as providing hanging points on the roof of the nest.

This nest is best for small founding colonies coming out of test tube set ups.

A heat cable can run underneath the nest at two points to warm the nest. You can also run a heat cable along the top of the nest, specifically useful for raising humidity as well as battling condensation.

There is a water reservoir at the side to hydrate the nest. Please exercise caution when adding water to the nest as you run the risk of flooding if you add too much. We advise to take a day or two before offering to your colony to make sure you understand the correct amount of water to apply, and when.

The nest comes with:

  • Ant Cave
  • 2 x ~4cm long PVC tubing (11mm OD / 8mm ID)
  • 16x100mm test tube
  • PVC tube to test tube connector
