Our cork nest inserts are optimal for ant species that live in wood or dead wood. The nest has prefabricated natural chambers and passages so that the ants can move in directly.
Since the cork nest must have a thickness of at least 20mm to be easily manufactured and transported without damage, they are only available in size L.
Cork nests should only be used in dry or at least not permanently humid formicariums. If cork nests are too humid for a long time, a decomposition process may appear on the surface or the material may slowly discolor.
In permanently humid formicaria, such as rainforest habitats, we therefore recommend our Digfix nests.
The size of the nest inserts (L) does not refer to the outer dimensions, but to the thickness and the connections or openings (adapted to the size of different ant species).
L = 20mm for large species like Camponotus sp. with cork inserts also for smaller ant species M – L
