Hi All

As explained in the new member's section my son has just started to keep ants and is making a number of videos on his progress. here is the first . Hope I've done this correct.

Please feel free to comment. He now has all the parts that were missing from his starter kit :D

Very cool video. Hhahaha good ending.
Well, you have some options about the tubing.
-Buy a tube that fits well somewhere, sure that will find a bigger one.
-Place some non toxic silicone(aquarium silicone) to fill the empty espace.
-Use 2 part epoxy to do the same as above.
-If you really want to quick fix this you can place a big piece of cotton in the hole and try to squeeze the tube inside.

Hi JPS,

Thanks for the feedback, we managed to get the missing bits from Antkit in the end there was a connector missing so all sorted.

Thanks again

A while ago I asked if Santa could make a hardback copy of the Ant's Canada book for Jack for Christmas and very kindly I got permission, well here is Jacks 5th vlog, his Lasius Niger Queen is still in hibernated so Jack had time to read his Christmas Present. In his latest log he reviews the Ant Canada Ultimate Guide to Ant Keeping. I think he liked it, what do you think

6th vlog, With the weather warming up it is finally time to see if Jack's Lasius Niger Queen has made it through the winter. In this video Jack's take Queen Elizabeth out of hibernation . Her test tube setup is getting dirty and has little water left so he'll need to move her to a new setup. How does he do? and how does she fair!

Hi All

Jack's 7th vlog, and his Niger Queen is doing well, and final starting her colony. With her first patch of eggs laid it is time to review the stages of an ant's life. Form egg to ant, with the help of his drawing Jacks explains it all, well as only he can.

Apologies for the misspelling of Larvae :oops:
