The Cave is one of our newer formicarium models. This formicarium is excellent for larger species of ants and larger colonies. It is not recommended for founding queens or small colonies. The Cave is also specially designed for ants in the “honeypot” genus, Myrmecocystus, for it's elevated ceilings. The Cave actually is a large-sized formicarium which has been an excellent sale to teachers for classroom purposes. Featuring a very deep and large bottom chamber, this formicarium gives ant colonies the impression of an established colony's main chamber!

The inside material in this formicarium is standard to all AntsNational formicariums. Cleaning of any AntsNational formicarium is recommended only when the ants are not inhabiting the product.
Excellent for classrooms and those with limited available space!
This formicarium is designed for small, medium and large colonies. The hydration system in this formicarium is best suited via misting once per week. This ant farm features a 4-sided view on all sides as well as an added “bottom view” for when you wish to observe the colony in the center of the nest. Condensation can accumilate in this nest so it is always recommended that the extra bag of loose sand is poured onto the surface of the foraging area in small amounts to control humidity. This nest is connectable to other formicariums!
It is also recommended to line 1 to 2 cm from the top on all sides with a thin slick of vegetable oil or fluon.
