Aus Ants Ytong Nest Size 06 Classic Green
This model has two entrance/exit holes and comes with two connecting vinyl tube segments, 13mm in diameter (10mm internal) and 50mm in length.
We use a 10mm internal diameter vinyl tube to connect the nests up to other nests or foraging areas. This tube can easily be scaled up or down with a vinyl tube joiner based on your antsäó» requirements.
Aus AntsŒæformicariums are made fromŒæYtong, autoclaved aerated concrete, aŒæbacking plate of marine-grade plywood, attached using non-toxic epoxy, with a removable acrylic front plate, secured with screws. Painted with an eco friendly paint.
The nest requires water everyŒæ3ŒætoŒæ6Œædays. To reduce the risk of nest flooding, moisten the sponge slowly so that the water can be absorbed by the sponge. The Ytong is porous, absorbing water from the sponge and hydrating your nest.
This formicarium is suitable for housing a colony in the range ofŒæ100ŒætoŒæ4000 ants. It can be utilised forŒæsmall, medium or large species of ants and it is considered to be a formicarium for a large colony.
