Description

This ant colony starter kit includes everything you need to start in the hobby of ant keeping!

To start founding a colony, first you need a queen ant. The best, and proven, method to found your colony is the test tube method.

 

With this ant colony starter kit, you get:

2 x 16mm test tubes

2 x cotton balls

1 x tweezers

1 x pipette

1 x honey jelly protein pot (ant food)

1 x test tube portal

 

You should follow online guides on how to set up your test tube ready for a queen ant, the test tube and cotton ball will be needed to set this up, a recommended video is from ant keeping 101 found on youtube by following this link

Once your queen has been in their test tube for a while, the water will slowly deplete, so you will need to transfer the queen into a freshly prepared test tube. This is what the test tube transfer portal is for and will make this process very easy and with minimal stress to the queen.

You can also purchase additional test tube portals separately by following this link

Tweezers and pipette to assist with setting up the test tubes.

Have fun, and good luck!!
