Telegram?

I was wondering if there may be any ant keeping telegram groups? It'd be pretty neat. Or if anyone is interested, I could make one up?

Re: Carpenter Ant Formicarium

Thank you. I have a few different ideas now. I wonder if I could get a container like the crappy kiddy type ant farms, or have help making a box like that from clear acrylic, where I could mash up and pack it full of wood pulp/rotten wood and let them dig their own tunnels, but still see them. I'd j...

Local Shop for Test Tubes?

This is the last, most likely silly question I have right now.

Where would I go to find test tubes, just so I can have a handful ready before my order arrives? I'm not sure what stores to even look in. Would hobby or pet stores have them?

Test Tubes

I'm shooting for carpenter ants, they can chew through a lot. Is a cotton ball really going to keep them in the test tube? Im trying to figure it all out now, if the weather warms and stays nice, they can start the nuptial flights as early as next month.

Any Keepers in Port Huron. MI?

While I love the information here, I'd also love to find others close by to hang out with and learn more from. Maybe even some buddies to go queen catching with, aside from having my younger cousins help me catch a few. That way, I can have a better pair of eyes help me with things like setting up t...

Re: Carpenter Ant Formicarium

Thank you! I'm pretty excited for next month, when nuptial flights should start. I know this will go better than my many childhood ant farms. Most of them escaped and the one gel one I had, I felt so terrible when I learned how bad they are for ants. Plus, with these farms, if I accidentally bump it...

Carpenter Ant Formicarium

Ok, so I'm legally blind. I have very low vision. I can see the large ants, like carpenter ants with magnification. I can see them...well, as fuzzy smudges without. I plan on capturing some queens at my uncle's place when the nuptial flights should start. I'll be using my younger cousins to help me ...
