Re: A Hybrid nest for small ants.......

We are making a small Hybrid, the Hybrid Mini, but we are still several months away from being completed with it. There will just be one design, rather than 5 or 6, but it will fill the need of smaller colonies.

Re: my order

Hi. I was wondering when my order will ship? I ordered the tetramorium gear pack on the 14th, and I'm not sure what to do while I wait for it as my colony is rapidly outgrowing its test tube. Frankly, I'm not sure why I ordered tetramorium, as my species is solenopsis. Would it be possible for me t...

Re: Best Hydration Medium for Hybrid Nest 2.0

Another option is to fill the basin with Perlite. Any of these suggestions should work fine.

Re: Are all hybrid nests being remodeled?

The Pogonomyrmex, Myrmica, and Solenopsis hybrid nests are not listed on the store anymore. Are they being remodeled into 2.0s too? We are working on a new 2.0 version of Solenopsis, but sadly the Pogonomyrmex and Myrmica nests have been phased out. They just didn't sell very well compared to the o...

Re: Heat cable for Hybrid nest 2.0

Hello, It was recommended to use a 15 watt heating cable for the small sized hybrid nest. Now that the Hybrid nest 2.0 is much bigger, would it be safe to use a 25 watt heating cable, or is that still too strong? I plan on housing Camponotus sp from BC canada. Thanks. We have not tested anything hi...

Re: I am worried.

The Omni Small ships in two pieces, the nest section and the outworld section. The outworld section comes with a bag inside with two long acrylic pieces without water holes that can be used if you want to use the long watering chambers as living chambers. It also comes with a cover for the outworld ...
