Re: 3D Ant Nests

What if you made it modular Yeah the "small building blocks" I mentioned in my earlier post would be a modular approach.

Re: 3D Ant Nests

Some of our ideas for making something like this work fit into the category of a "do it yourself" project. I think these ideas are great and would be fun to do on an individual basis, but making something like this to sell to other people may prove to be too problematic.

Re: 3D Ant Nests

I think he means like take a metal cast of an actual nest and then turn that into an acrylic nest. Think like these but clear and hollow. I think it would be kind of cool, but hydration would be difficult. https://www.buzzfeed.com/roamingrosie/6-aluminum-anthill-art-sculptures-that-will-blow-y-h90i...

Re: What if nobody wants my Ants?!?!

You can just release them. Find a suitable place around your house, neighborhood, etc., and set the test tube on the ground. They will eventually move out.

Re: Monomorium minimum. NEW COLONY.

I suspect they live longer than a year. I've had a Tetramorium sp E colony for 3.5 years now and they seem to be going strong. (Very similar to M. minimum . They would have to live long enough at least to create alates in order to preserve the species. Regarding your question hibernation, it is up t...

Re: Nest Size limiters for Hybrid Nest 2.0

Since the new hybrids are coming out and are so large, I think, for smaller colonies there should be a feature with "sliding doors" like the vertical omni, except you only have to push them down to close it, it may include clear plugs when done with the feature. Make it an optional feature please, ...
