Outworld substrate/ground ideas

Hello everyone, After the whole debacle with a colony moving into a natural dirt setup in an outworld, I need new ideas for what to use. I have just the empty outworld since my ants are hibernating right now and was thinking that it would be a great time to fill it with something. I’m thinking like ...

Raising feeders

Hello everyone, I was scrolling through the posts and saw one on feeders, which reminded me of some stuff. I could swear that I saw a video (I think from AntsCanada) on YouTube on raising different feeder insects, but I can’t seem to find it now. If someone knows of a good video, or just knows how t...

Re: Reduced price - "scratch & dent" products

Any updates on scratch and dent items? I’m just wondering again what items you have available for purchase if any. I would love things like the portals, tubes, tubing, adaptors, outworld (if possible), or any hybrid nests. I will take broken or the bottomless ones and fix them up. I saw a while back...

Re: Hibernation temperature question

Think about it: local wild ants deal with the same temperatures in your garage, and survive. They should be fine in your garage. I put my colonies in an unheated garage. Temperatures get below freezing and they are fine. They create a natural antifreeze in their body to survive these temperatures. ...

All the ants need is humidity, so attaching two tubes and leaving the means to breathe will work fine.
Yea I have done that (and I actually made a post on it) and so far it’s working. Won’t the cold slow down the mold development, as well as the ants not drinking as much?

The general rule is to wait till you don't see ants outside. My colony of Tetramorium hasnt slowed down yet so I'm keeping them in my room for now.. Probably in the next couple weeks though I will put them in.
Ok
My ants are in hibernation now btw
Ok me too

Re: My encounter with Asian Marader Ants (Carebara Diversa)

If you see anything on the browser page other than just your image, then your link is not usable to be embeded. It has nothing to do with the image host (except Photobucket, which is trash). But, if you use tools like "view image" and "copy image location" (the exact wording is different depending ...

My encounter with Asian Marader Ants (Carebara Diversa)

Hello everyone, Last spring I had the amazing opportunity to go over to South-East Asia with my family, to visit the area, and help out at an orphanage. It was an amazing experience and a great place (I know that there are some people on this forum from there and you are very lucky). Anyway, I was l...
