Humidity is how ants get most of their water. Condensation occurs when warmer humid air condenses on a cool surface, and small animals can drown in it. If you get rid of the heater and/or allow the moist air to escape, the condensation will probably go away.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.
