Heating Cable?

In all of Mikey's videos on the AntsCanada youtube channel he mentions using a heating cable to keep a formicarium or a test tube set up at a good temperature. I am unfamiliar with heating cables. What are they, and can someone recommend a good one to use for a test tube or for a formicarium?

They live inside cracks in the concrete) that lives right next to this concrete block, and I saw seve...

I get excited by all sorts of tiny critters and I thought it was a mite or a small spider. But when I let my eyes adjust, I recognised the segmented body of an ant, as well ...
