byFormica testing bug box

byFormica continue to innovate and are in the first stages of developing a bug box. The idea is simple, contain the food that you're feeding the ants inside the box and eliminate the chances of organic matter making its way into your outworld or nest, reducing the risk of mold spores reproducing.
