Show Off Your Setup!

Recommended Posts

I think it's always neat to see how people approach raising ants. Since it's spring and everyone should be out of hibernation now, I thought it might be a good time to start a thread where we can show off our setups. I'll start:


I mainly have founding colonies right now, so this is what i'm working with. I took a few lids off so you can see inside. The uncovered box and red box have C. pennsylvanicus and the blue has F. subsericea. The other boxes are waiting for my Crematogaster queens to get nanitics. The heating cable is a 15W reptile heating cable that fits nicely under the tube/outworld connection and provides a nice heat gradient for the ants. You can also see it going into my queen box at the top. The P. imparis queens are also in the queen box in slots a little further away from the cable. 

(Yes, the boxes are re-purposed butter boxes covered in origami paper.)

Oh my gosh, that's so great! I wish I would have thought of that for my queen box!
