Product description

Pogonomyrmex ant keeping starter set:
This starter set is specially designed for various species of the genus Pogonomyrmex. One of the two farms is intended for the storage of grains and ant bread and should therefore be kept completely dry to prevent grains/seeds stored there by the ants from germinating or becoming moldy.
The “Digfix plates” can be inserted into the fully transparent farms. Alternatively, however, the “Substrate – Desert” can be used to fill the farms. Additional modules can be connected via the 50mm holes in the cover if required, such as the separately available foggers, fans or lights. Alternatively, matching grid inserts are included to close the openings. Depending on your preference, the formicarium can also be operated open by simply placing the removable frame on top and applying ant escape protection oil to its rim. The “Drinking trough clear 20 ml – sponge” is intended for water, the “Food dispenser 2 ml – dosable” for the grains. The “Mini thermo-hygrometer” can be attached to the frame or cover and displays the climate values.

Important: Please moisten the substrate before use so that the mixture can bind 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 the animals suffocate.

Recommendation: We recommend a soil layer of 2 mm height, so that the animals cannot burrow into the arena and instead use the farm provided for them. We also recommend lightly pricking the nesting material in the farm (sand/clay, digfix, etc.) at one point to make it easier for the animals to dig in.

Notes on production
The glass is cut according to DIN 1249 with a tolerance of +/- 1mm. In case of extremely small ants an additional breakout protection is essential.

Note on the farm
When attaching or detaching hoses, please note the following:
If the tubing is very difficult to fit onto the connector bushing, the bushing should be lightly rubbed with a drop of our breakout protection oil or powder. The hose should then be pushed onto the bushing by twisting or screwing movements without stressing the bushing with up and down movements. The same applies when removing the hoses from the connection socket of the farm. Please do not simply pull them off!

Note on Digfix: The natural color shade can vary between green / gray-brown and earth brown. The shade does not affect the quality.

Notes on the Cricket Jam:
Our Cricket Jam is an easy way to provide your ants with freshly preserved protein food without having to feed live insects. The contained crickets (Acheta domesticus) have been gently cooked to ensure that nutritional values, taste and aroma are preserved. In addition, the chitinous shell of the insects is softened in this way so that it can be digested more easily. The bonds of the collagen proteins are broken down so that the ants can utilize them better. Canned Acheta domesticus has the same nutritional value as live crickets, but is easier to digest.

The Cricket Jam is not suitable for hunting ant species that require live food. (e.g. ponerines (great ants) such as Harpegnathos or Odontomachus)

Further advantages:
Guaranteed mite-free
Can be portioned and diluted with water
Sterilized and vacuum-packed
Without additives
Crickets from sustainable, purely organic breeding, fed with organic waste

Note:
Can be kept in the fridge for about four days after opening. Longer shelf life if frozen.
Attention: First portion, then freeze.
