Re: Another Outworld (maybe?)

Thank you for the suggestion. Some of our Omni products come with their own outworld. Those are probably the ones you have seen. The only other product that can be used as a mini-outworld, like for a starter colony, is our Test Tube Portal. https://www.AntsCanada.com/shop/ac-test-tube-portal/ If you...

Re: How to return items?

The cost of the shipping is more than the tubing. One or both of us would lose money trying to get it shipped back to us. :(

i don't think tempered glass will add anything but cost really i mean its good at resisting scratches and has really high compression value for glass but if you drop it it will still shatter just like the equivalent piece of soda glass
Good to know, thanks!

Re: Feedback request for homemade vertical ant frame

Funny you should mention this idea. Just last week we started discussing the possibility of a glass, upright formicarium (ala Uncle Milton style, but much more classy). A couple of issues so far: 1. We want it fully enclosed except the top. So all surfaces would be glass. This creates a drainage pro...

Re: AC Outworld Portals?

The AC Outworld instruction manual, a PDF document that you can access from the AntsCanada.com web site, outworld page, shows what it comes with. I see on the All You Need Hybrid Nest pages it says Outworld Plus 2 AC Outworld Portals. I believe it should say 2 AC Plugs or just nothing at all. The Ou...

Re: Hybrid Nest Mini 2.0 for Brachymyrmex patagonicus?

The Hybrid Nest series has 0.25mm hydration holes. I know of one customer who discovered that there was one of the hundreds of holes that was slightly larger, perhaps a manufacturing defect. He had some small ants and they escaped through that one hole. There are also two larger holes under the glas...

Re: New Antkeeper

Welcome to the forums! Like the ants, we tend to slow down a bit here as winter approaches :). Tip #1: You gotta be patient. New colonies take a long time to develop.

Re: Hybrid nest 2.0 heating cable

Whatever you have been doing looks great! The colony is developing nicely. I think the key with heat is to make sure there is a heat gradient in the nesting space. This gives the ants the ability to place brood in the ideal temperature. Maybe you could run the cable over or under the test tube porta...

Re: I’m the suburban area north of Salt Lake City I found an ant in July that I can’t identify

Looks like Tetramorium to me but Tetramorium usually fly in the Spring, not the Fall. Lasius usually fly in Fall.
