Large Vertical Omni Nest Outworld Cracking

Hi there. A while ago I got a large vertical omni nest. First of all the side bars that keep it together kept breaking on the ends where they are thin. I found a way around this, then today i applied talcum powder and surgical spirit (rubbing alcohol) to the outworld.

Within a few minutes I noticed small cracks along the top of the outworld and along some of the joins plus larger ones. Upon further inspection with my microscope the cracks were still actively spreading through the perspex.

Has anyone encountered this? Is this some kind of chemical reaction?

Also is there anyone who knows how to get into contact with the AntsCanada team so that i can discuss this problem with them?

Thanks.

Hi Jimbo,

I am sorry to hear about this. I am unsure what happened as this is the first time we have heard something like this ever happening. Please email us along with photos of the cracks, etc and we can send you a free replacement.
