What have you done with your "all you need" products?

Let us know of your ant colonies or queens that have passed away. We will grieve together but will also learn why your ants may not have succeeded.

What have you done with your "all you need" products?

Hello everyone!
I bought an "all you need tetramorium" package a couple of weeks ago and my first colony is nearing on needing to use it. What have you guys done with it and how have you set yours up? Since it comes with 3 feet of each size of tubing I think I am going to cut the small tubing in half to connect the nest to the outworld (like the product picture on the AntsCanada store). Then I will use the the large tubing to connect to portals and stuff since it only seems to fit with the test tube adaptors, and tubing connectors. I think I'm just going to try and incorporate everything I've been given into the single setup somehow. What have you guys done, pictures would be amazing if you can!
Thanks for your input!

It really depends on how you want it to be set up and what works best for you. As long as the ants can't escape it should be fine just experiment and see how you like it set up. Personally I tend to use dirt nests where I can see the ants tunnel so I don't have experience with this type of nest but I have done loads of research. Good luck with your ants!
