Re: Pogonomyrmex Occidentalis

Does anyone know if these ants sting? I have seen tons of these wild colonies in my area and they seem like a good species to keep. Yes they sting. And it is somewhat painful ;) I have been stung several times by these girls. As you have deduced, they are a good species to keep though. I have a fou...

Re: Hybrid nest 2.0 heating cable

I use the lowest one available (15 watts), which emits a safe heat for a formicarium. I don't know exactly what the temp is, I just know it doesn't get too hot. Now having said that, I am still careful about where I place it, especially if I want to use it with ants that I have in test tube setups. ...

Re: Are test tubes always necessary?

The new AntsCanada Ant Tower is perfect for this. It's a soil formicarium so the new queen can excavate her own claustral chamber. As workers come along, they can forage above ground in the upper section of the Ant Tower. Expanding the setup is easy with tubing as well.

May I ask if AntsCanada can reduce the international shipping fee? I wanted to buy the ant tower but the shipping was $22.$35+$22= $57= :cry:
AntsCanada does not make money on shipping fees. We just pass along the actual shipping cost to the customer.

Glad you love it! :) We continue to run into snags with the development of the large Ant Tower. We fix them as they come up, but haven't been able to successf...
