Ant colony test tube portal

(7 customer reviews)


This product can also be used as a small outworld at the founding stage to easily feed your growing colony.


When one test tubes water is running out, it is always a pain to link up a second test tube to transfer the ant colony across to. With the ant portal, it has never been easier! All you need to do is attach the test tubes and wait.

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

This can also be used as a small outworld at the founding stage to easily feed your growing ant colony.

If you are just starting out, the portal comes as part of the Ant colony starter kit found here


The ant portal comes with acrylic sliding top and two 16mm x 100mm test tubes to fit.

**Test tubes are 16mm (outer diameter) and 14mm (inner diameter).

Not all 16mm test tubes have the same inner diameter due to thickness, so please note that the inner diameter of 14mm is what fits this product.

However the circular connectors can be easily sanded down if a slightly smaller test tube needs to be connected**

All products are made to order by 3D printing and clear acrylic tops are cut by hand so please understand there may sometimes be slight imperfections but nothing stopping the nest from functioning as designed

    I had expected something that’d last a season, but it seems really well made. I bought 2 of them for a couple of small rubra queens. I have no doubt these could easily be used to house up to 100+ without much of a problem, the top sliding plastic fits really well, the test tubes fit really well too. My existing fit on the same. 1 test tube purchased from another company doesnt fit very well at all, I made it work though. Highly recommend this product to anyone who has just got a queen.

    It’s a nice test tube portal and came nicely packaged. I would only say the minor downside is the holes in the side for any new born ants can escape 😅. Overall, a nice little thing.

    Used as a mini outworld for the first year of my lasius N life, her colony has outgrown it now, but very simple to feed a small colony without disturbing the test tube, which I think is the reason my colonies are doing well because they have been left undisturbed
