Starter Sets Digfix
Ant species which you can keep in a Digfix Starter Set
Digfix is a nesting material specially designed for ants. It is natural and can be kept both dry and wet. The advantage over sand-loam is that the ants do not soil the windows of their ant farm, so you always have a perfect view of the corridors and chambers.
The sizes of the starter sets (S, M, L) differ only in the distance between the plates of the ant farm and the size of the holes for connection to ant arenas and other ant farms (both matching the size of the ant species).
S = 6mm for small species like Myrmica
M = 10mm for medium species like Lasius and Formica
L = 20mm for large species such as Camponotus with nest insert also for smaller ant species.
To find out which nest type your desired ant species prefers you can check the respective product description or in our Formicarium Finder.
