This expandable starter set, for all leafcutter ant species includes, in addition to the optimally adapted formicarium, the appropriate accessories for keeping these ants. The voluminous tanks allow a comfortable handling when supplying and cleaning. The large holes (50mm) and tubes not only allow the ants to be easily observed, they also enable the animals to remove large pieces of leaves. The stainless steel grid inserts provide good ventilation and are robust against mechanical impact. Even large colonies of the very cutting-friendly leafcutter ants are not able to penetrate them. The sturdy screw bushings are also absolutely bite-resistant. The thermo- and hygrometer inside the system is absolutely child- and pet-proof and allows easy control of the climate values. If necessary, the humidity can be increased with the spray bottle.
Important: Please moisten the substrate before use, so that the mixture can combine and develop a firm hold in the ant farm. In addition, too dry and dusty substrate can lead to blocking the respiratory tract of the ants and, in the worst case, suffocate the animals.
Notes on production
The glass is cut according to DIN 1249 with a tolerance of +/- 1mm. For extremely small ant species, additional breakout protection is essential.
