ant setup

today the hybrid nest arrived(finaly)so i made a video about it(no link here).
then after the unboxing video i encountered a problem... the test tube they came in didn't fit
in any adaptors so i made a connector using cotton which worked(i hope). then i made a video about the setup
(again no link here)

the outworld is not here yet... so i made one using a box(from when you order Chinese food)
it was the same box as the one i used for hibernation exit i put some sugar cubes(ones that you put in tea) in.
(do ants eat those?).

i didnt put flies in because i dont think they can kill it


the cat has been foud guilty of his crimes and sentenced to 10 days staying inside(LOL :lol: )

Ants should be able to eat sugar cubes but maybe not the full thing.
My current colonies:
Test_o's colony(camponotus novaeboracensis)
the black hearts(crematogaster cerasi)
the power of war(camponotus novaeborecensis)
the shadow ants(formica subaenescens)
The miniature military (formica neogagates)

Ants around me are becoming more and more common.Kinda makes sense since I live in Texas so it doesnt get as cold as other places.Well you know except the whole Snow thing a few weeks back.
