The set itself is very compact and its contents is reduced to the most important equipment for ant keeping.

Recommendation: We recommend a substrate layer of 2 mm height, so that the animals can not burrow in the arena and instead use the farm provided for this purpose. We also recommend lightly pricking the nesting material in the farm (sand/clay, digfix, etc.) in one place to make it easier for the animals to start digging.
Important: Please moisten the substrate before use so that the mixture can combine and develop a firm hold in the ant farm. In addition, too dry and dusty substrate can lead to blocking the respiratory tract of the ants and, in the worst case, the animals suffocate.
When using our nest insets, please note that these are 8mm narrower, as they were originally designed to fit our narrower ant farms and arena inserts! Here the interspace should be filled with filling material such as gypsum or loam.
Note about production:
The glass is cut according to DIN 1249 with a tolerance of +/;- 1mm. For extremely small ant species, additional ant escape protection is essential.
