Re: When is the new hybrid nest coming out?

Okay it's March already and no news of the new hybrid nest. Do you by chance know when the 1st will be announced? I see something was said about the end of February that's why I said it's March already LOL. No rush just curious Thanks for asking. There have been a few issues that came up in the des...

Re: Omni Nest mesh

Yeah sorry, I meant the Hybrid nest. Sorry for posting it here. Thank you very much for you answer. I'm planning on housing some small Solenopsis Fugax and their eggs look really tiny, smaller than 0.011 inches. Am I safe to go or should I consider buying an Omni instead of a Hybrid nest? 0.011 inc...

Re: Omni Nest mesh

Hello everyone, I'm about to purchase an Omni Nest but I still have a doubt. I'm planning on housing a very small species of ants, and I'm scared that the brood will fall trough the mesh and down into the hydration medium. Does anyone know how thick the mesh is? The size in micron or mesh would be ...

Re: Reduced price - "scratch & dent" products

What have you got left in connectors, test tube portals, and test tube racks? I may just buy you out on connectors, a portal or two and a rack or two if you have any left. Crazy thing -- As I was gathering up the test tube racks off my shelf, the #11 Hybrid was under them! :) I only have one entran...

Re: Very disappointed

I purchased the ‘All You Need’ Lasius Hybrid Gear Pack just under a year ago and I am not at all impressed with the quality of these products. A few months ago my Iridomyrmex colony finally hit a high enough worker population to move them from their test tube into the Hybrid nest and since then I'v...

Re: CETA just passed the EU parliament voting

And please look into setting up a distribution hub on continental Europe. Your shipping costs are outrageous. This basicly It would be more accurate to say "the" shipping costs are outrageous rather than "your" shipping costs are outrageous. The latter seems to imply that we have some sort of contr...

Re: ooper's Pogonomyrmex occidentalis colony (#1)

I finally was able to see the queen of this colony! It's been well over a year since I've seen her. Glad I finally did. The colony is doing well. They have slowed a little since I removed the heat source from the nest for the winter. I'll add it back in about a month or so and get them going again. ...

Re: i need help with hybrid nest small

Hi alexjames, The tubing is meant to be a tight fit into the Hybrid Nest to avoid accidental dislocation. That being said, if it is still not going in, you can cut a small triangular notch in one end of the tubing, using two angled cuts with a razor blade or other sharp edge. The notch doesn't need ...
