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.


2 gum container lids:

Duct Tape



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.
