When your colony is ready to go into your Antfarm use the guide below for assistance.
Tip: release the Ants by loosening the plastic lid and them place the test tube in the outworld, Use your tweezers and remove the lid off the test tube. They will come out when ready sometimes it can take a week or two. To encourage exiting from the test tube, put a towel or similar over the nest area to make that area darker.
For easy access to the Outworld area we recommend using the long tweezers for maintenance and removing and filling Feeding towers.
Do not remove the extension gates until the colony has stated to multiply and always keep the bottom sponge hydrated, this can be done by using the blunt tip syringe to wet the sponges.
Where the round lid goes on put some coconut oil on your finger and run it around the inside of the rim, this will prevent ants coming out when you take the lid of for any maintenance.
The Ant Farms are suitable for all Ants but the width of the nest should be changed to suit the Species of Ant kept. Small Ant should use 2 middle panels medium size Ants 3 to 4 middle panels and Myrmecia 5 middle panels. We can adjust the panel width during manufacture so let us know how wide you would like it. If no panel width is stated we will send out the 4 middle pane model as the default version.
