The Antden

Clear
SKU: ASA70 Category:

Features of the Hybrid nest:

Each nest has different chambers of varying depths and sizes.

Each Nest has a 3mm clear perspex viewing lid, which is placed on top of the nest. The viewing lid can easily be removed and is not secured onto the nest.
*You may decide to use marine silicone for a more secure fit, but we feel that is only necessary when you have small colonies such as pheidole or an aggressive species. Be careful when moving your nest around.

Nest Area Dimensions: L×100mm W×100mm H×27mm

Hydration system: Simply add your moisture medium into the hydration chamber on the top left and the moisture will pass through the holes. The hybrid nest comes with a black sponge, but you may choose to use your own medium.

* This is a formicarium, your ants will also need an outworld to explore and forage.

Connectivity: The ant nest can easily connect to an outworld with a clear 12mm or 16mm pipe using either one of the holes. You may also connect a test tube to the nest for extra hydration. As your colony grows you may connect another nest to your existing nest for expansion.

The Hybrid ant nest comes with:
1 x Hybrid Nest, including 3mm perspex lid
1 x 16mm test tube
1 x 16mm test tube adapter
1x Plug

How to clean:
Did you know, every ant colony has different hygiene habits. Some ants love to keep their nest area clean, and other ants fill their nest up with soil or other ant species use a section of their nest to dump their trash.
Once you make your hybrid nest their home, it is their home and they own it, their housekeeping may not be up to your standards but that is the way they like it.

When the time comes to move your colony to a bigger nest, you may give your hybrid nest a wash in warm soapy water. Do not make the water too hot. The PLA plastic does have a melting or bending point and should not be exposed to heat above 80 to 90 Degrees Celsius.

Where did The Antden name come from:
Monday 12 July 2021 to Sunday 18 July 2021, South Africa and especially KZN, was on the edge of their seats as we got bombarded with "looters".
They were literally like a swarm of ants as they enveloped the buildings and ravaged them.
It was and still is a historic, devastating, sad, uplifting, and inspiring week. As we've seen South Africans stand as one.
In honor of this past week, ASA held a competition on social media to name this ant nest. The winner was @Abugmanslife
We would like to thank all South Africans who helped their communities during this time.
