byFormica contemplating bug stake
Looks like the genius' behind groTube are contemplating a bug stake to help keep those larger insects in place so your ants can't pull them back down into the nests. Ant keepers know this can be a problem because legs and other body parts often can't be removed from the nests.
Looking at the design it looks like a great idea that we'd love here at Gamergate. We're often trying to dig legs and antennae out of our nests that have made their way in.
Hopefully this makes it into production. We'll keep you guys posted.
