Ant Farm - STARTER SET

For an easy start to ant keeping.

Whether you are a small discoverer and scientist, a fan of nature and an avid insect keeper, a parent or a friend looking for an original gift, or a person who wants to have a piece of nature on his desk in the office, this ant farm is definitely the right choice.


The set consists of an arena and a module. Both of these parts are made of high-quality and safe ABS plastic (white part) and plexiglass, which perfect clarity ensures an unobstructed view into the world of ants.

Arena

The arena is the space in which ants
search and hunt for food. This is where
water, insects, fruit and other things that
ants need to live are replenished.
The ants take what your colony needs back
to the nest module, and you can watch
them undisturbed thanks to the transparent walls and lid.

Module

The module is an integral part of the entire
ant farm - the formicarium. It serves as
a home for the ants. Inside each module
there are corridors and chambers where
the ants live, rest, and care for new individuals. It is also the place where the queen
herself is found, and she can be in peace
and safety. That's why each module is
equipped with a red lid to dim the light and
simulate the environment of a real anthill.

Choose your Material ->

You can choose from several offered materials. If your colony did not do well, you can disassemble the module again in the same way, replace the material with a new material and start a new colony

Cork

It is a natural material that easily absorbs and retains water. Some species, such as Camponotus, are able to dig new chambers inside and adjust the cork. Excessive wetting can cause mould. Suitable for species: Camponotus, Messor

HappyFOAM

A plastic-based material that does not absorb water and does not mould. The module needs to be watered more often. Suitable for species: Messor, Lasius

SAND

It is a natural material in which moisture is easily maintained but at the same time non-mouldy. Ants adjust their nest themselves, but sometimes they can hide in the sand. Suitable for species: Manica, Lasius, Tetramorium

⭐ Easy Watering

The watering hole in the module allows you to easily maintain the right humidity inside the formicarium. Thanks to the extra-fine metal grid, there is no risk of ants escaping and it provides them with an extra supply of water and air.

⭐ Easy to feed

The ant farm has several clever features that will make it easier and faster for you to care for ants. One of them is an opening in the upper part of the arena ceiling, through which you can comfortably place food and replenish water without the ants climbing out the wall.  For a thorough cleaning, you can remove the entire ceiling.

⭐ Detailed Handbook in English

You will receive a detailed handbook together with each STARTER set. You will find all the important information, nicely listed step by step.

  • New ant colony in a test tube
  • Module preparation
  • Moving the colony to the formicarium
  • Placement of the formicarium
  • Drinks and food
  • Watering of the module
  • Temperature
  • Cleaning and maintenance
  • Hibernation

And many more hints and tips, including hibernation labels! :)

⭐ Modular system - Expand as you want!

The honeycomb-like shape allows you to expand your ant farm whenever and wherever you want. You can add as many modules and arenas as needed, according to your colony size. The whole formicarium then forms a single whole. Connectors are part of the package (4 pcs.).

⭐ Design product manufactured in the Czech Republic

This ant farm was invented and made in the Czech Republic and its functional and nice design will help you discover the hidden world of ants and make it easier for you to observe them. You can add decorations to the arena and the formicarium will surely become a piece of art of your room, school or office.
