Re: $

Oh okay. I was also wondering why there are 3 shipping options. Does one work better than the other? If I choose the cheaper one, will my package come broken? (What are the differences) http://i.imgur.com/nRIJLC1.png Global Express Guaranteed is a FEDEX service through the US Postal Service. The ma...

Re: $

Since this size of the new nests are increasing, does this mean it'll take longer to introduce your colony? I have a colony of tetramorium about 20 workers strong. Do you suggest I fill up all of the chambers with sand, so they can remove it when they need space? Yes that will be the suggestion for...

Re: Camponotus spp. in AC Vinyl Tubing

The inside diameter of the large tubing is ~9.5mm. I suspect the girth of your queen does not exceed that! :) She should be fine. She may have a little trouble turning around inside the tubing, but she can definitely pass through it with plenty of headroom. Workers would also be able to pass each ot...

Re: $

You should add a small bag of sand-clay-mix or some other substrate to every nest. Not only does it improve the way humidity spreads throughout the nest it also makes it easier to take pictures (because if you try to take a picture of ants in a very light colored nest - or even worse a white one - ...

Re: $

So when are the next hybrids coming out? I heard they'll be cheaper. The Formica Hybrid will be available within a month or so -- others to follow. We are hoping the others will be available for Christmas, but we aren't making any promises on that just yet. We are hoping to be able to drop the pric...

Re: $

Honestly, all formicariums online are overpriced anyways. You can be creative, buy materials yourself and let your creativity flow for way less. There are many being sold on eBay, etc and the things that they're selling for $150 can be made for about $30 and day, with leftover materials. Yes this i...

Re: $

I was wondering why shipping was so high. The default cost is an additional 100$ on top of your already 100$ purchase. The cheapest one is around 40, but how do I know my package will arrive in one piece. AntsAustralia uses ytong & paints their nests for way cheaper than AC. + Shipping isn't crazy....
