We've been working on a few different outworlds lately.
We've been focusing on something a little larger designed for Australia's larger Myrmecia species. We've also been looking at ways to keep live plants without encouraging mould or the ant colony moving into the outworld.
Above is a photo of the latest design. In the middle of the shelves you can see a slightly larger outworld that is connected to a nest on the shelf above and to the left via flexible hose. It contains natural materials along with a couple of live plants that are watered externally. It's just a sneak peek of the design before we publish a DIY article.
Let us know what you think below.
Today we are having a look at the range of honeycomb nests now being produced by Antworlds.
Here's a little formicarium from Brian Martell for an Australian ant keeper with a tighter budget.
Empire Of Ants has created a formicarium that seems to be effective, whilst also displaying a sense of class.
A new e-shop from Czech manufacturer, Happy Ant, makes purchasing a breeze.
For a considerably long time Antweb has been an incredible resource for those interested in ants. Now they've added a new exciting filter!
Recently we showed off Mark Newton's Formicarium he designed with internal lighting. Once again mark has been busy creating another. His newest creation is officially known as "The Ancient Temple of Formica".
Western Australia is a pretty special place. Hopefully WA ANTZ will help people there have a place to purchase live ants.
Proving again that keeping ants doesn't have to be expensive, we stumbled on this formicarium made from a soda bottle.
LC Ants is a another boutique formicarium manufacturer that has begun building CNC formicaria.
Last winter we were lucky enough to find a very small colony of Orectognathus sp. Here's a short video inside their colony.
