Myrmica Nest 2015

Post by dermy on Sun Oct 11, 2015 2:24 am

So around a month or so I made a new nest for my Myrmica Colony, which just recently came out of Hibernation. So I thought I'd post a little run through on how I made it.


Materials:

2 gum container lids:



Duct Tape

Scissors

Ants

Some form of substrate, could be grout but I don't think it would work well for this


First things first put them together:





Next tape them together [used a different one to show these next few things, better lighting Wink ]





Here are some other pictures showing the lids:








Here is the amount of space:

[a lot more then you'd think Smile ]





Here is a video showing my Myrmica Colony living inside one:

If you have any questions I'll try to answer them, I've only ran it for about a few weeks [2.5] so It's still rather new to me.
