The Nucleus is a double-sided formicarium from Tar Heel Ants. ξThe Nucleus formicaria have a number of features that make them different than other formicaria products. ξFeatures such as a two-sided nest, removable glass panels on both sides, substrate-coated chambers, nestmates watering system and water towers, magnetically detachable foraging area, and professionally carved Ytong nest make the Nucleus unique. ξThis nest is recommended for all species and sizes of ants.ξ

The Nucleus Type III formicarium is made of our Type III material which is better at preventing ants from tunneling into the nest material. ξType III material is a much better defense against pesky ants! ξThis is only a problem with larger colonies in most cases. ξThe large water towers included in the Type III Nucleus are sure to please those who have demanding schedules that require some time away from home!
