3D model description

I designed this nest to accommodate ants in a playful and practical way. Its advantages:

  • it can be connected to a flushing zone (outlet diameter 13mm, a piece of hose for aquarium filtration is suitable) ;

  • It is placed on a support serving as a water reservoir to maintain a favourable humidity level. To do this, you will need to add cotton in the humidification chamber provided for this purpose (see photo), with a piece of wool that goes from the cotton to the water tank (the water rises by capillarity from the tank to the humidification chamber). Autonomy: 1 to 3 months.

The plexiglass pane (10*15cm) is first placed in its location to locate the threaded holes. The plexiglass plate is drilled in these places (). The glass is then held in place with the screws (file screw). The assembly can then be placed on its support. The support can then be filled with water. A plug is used to close the opening.

It will be necessary to provide for :

  • a transparent plexiglass pane of 1 to 2mm thick (10*15cm)

  • a piece of cotton

  • a piece of wool (5 cm)

  • 2 pieces of filter grid, if possible made of stainless metal (mesh 50). Can be easily found on the internet for 3€. A grid prevents escape from the top of the nest, while allowing good ventilation and humidity regulation. The second grid protects the cotton against ant attacks.
