AntsNational internal test tube chamber
We found this great little idea from AntsNational a while back but thought we'd share it now anyway. We don't know the exact details as AntsNational have failed to reply to our emails and we're unsure if they're still selling them but it looks like a plaster mould with a custom sand/dirt applied to the internal chamber. They are removable so you can re-use them and clean the test tubes if needed.
These would be fantastic for your fussy claustral queens that don't like the baroness of test tubes. Or maybe a small semi-claustral queen would benefit from this type of thing.
If you're reading this AntNational get these back into production!
We'll let you guys know if AntsNational get in contact.
