The Dram Nest™

SKU: 001

The Dram nest was actually an accidental discovery in 2012 as a replacement for broken test tubes. It is a reinvention of a more naturalistic founding chamber for young queen ants. The Dram nest has not changed much in design except for a wider acrylic container as well as a three-level descending tunnel sequence which leads to the founding chamber itself. 


    Product Dimensions (Inches):


    1-7/8” x 3-5/16” (5 oz capacity)


    Comes with:


    • 1 AntBowl™

    • 1 Pipette

    • Lid w/ (1x) circular screen mesh


    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!


    Excellent for founding queens and very small colonies, the dram nest is the most inexpensive version of our all-in-one compact formicariums. With two parallel holes situated at the very bottom, this formicarium can absorb water from below by placing it into a small cup filled with 1/2 an inch in depth of lukewarm water. These formicariums are designed for queens that do not range over the length of 2cm. A decorated ventilation hole at the top features a dual-screen mesh design for both a bonafide escape-proof prevention system as well as well as durability factor. Once a colony has grown large enough, a larger formicarium is needed. The dram nest fits inside all of our available larger formicaria for an easy transfer by opening the lid and placing it on it's side into a larger formicarium.


    All orders are shipped on Mondays and Tuesdays, excluding Canadian and international holidays.
