AntWorks Illuminated Ant Farm Gel

AntWorks Illuminated Ant Farm Gel

AntWorks provides you
with a revolutionary way to observe the astute
architectural brilliance of nature’s beloved ants. This six and a half inch by
six inch space-age habitat is based on technology
used by NASA. The translucent
gel not only allows you to watch the ants create
their network of tunnels, but also provides the ants with
food and water for survival. Speaking of ants, you
must collect your own or order some from the
enclosed order forms found in your AntWorks
instruction manual. This instruction
manual also includes tons of interesting ant facts. Once you’ve received your
batch of ants, remove the lid and poke four holes
in the gel using the included two and
a quarter inch stick. These holes act as starting
points for the ants to begin tunneling. Next, insert approximately 20
to 25 ants into the container. Larger ones, such as harvester
ants, are recommended. Their size makes them
easier to observe, and their large mandibles
are great for tunnel digging. Avoid mixing different
species of ants, as they could spend
more time fighting than actually creating tunnels. Because the gel is a very
foreign environment for ants, 24 to 48 hours may pass
before any digging occurs. As you watch the time lapse
footage of our ants in action, keep a few things in mind. First, avoid storing the
AntWorks in direct sunlight. Ants prefer shade, so put
them in a room temperature between 50 and 74 degrees
Fahrenheit if possible. Second, the gel consists of
more than enough food and water for your ants to survive. In addition, ants
require little oxygen, so the small holes on
the lid are sufficient. However, opening t lid for
a few seconds every week wouldn’t hurt. Finally, ants generally
have a lifespan of one to three months. Some may live longer, and some
may expire before a month. Once the ants have begun digging
and their intricate tunnels begin to form, you can study
their unique, intelligent behavior up close. Their network of tunnels is
nothing short of amazing. AntWorks comes with a
magnifying glass, allowing you or your child to
observe specific ant mannerisms unable to be
seen by the naked eye. The included extreme
zoom lens lets you get even closer
to the action. AntWorks also comes with
a 120 volt A/C adapter. Once plugged in, the adapter
powers the bright blue LEDs attached to the base
of the container. The resulting
illumination beautifully highlights the
tunnels in the gel. Talk about a cool
nightlight for your kids. All in all, AntWorks
provides you and your children with an
entertaining and educational peek into the lives of nature’s
hardest working insects– ants. AntWorks– available
now from, creators
of award-winning DVDs and purveyors of curiously
awesome products.

  7. Gel farms are incredibly bad for ants. The gel can eventually turn to liquid and slowly drown the ants. Not only this, but it lacks protein and nutrients which are vital for a growing and colony and the workers survival. Also when the workers die, the gel can start developing mould which easily kills off any larvae and weakens the queen. When there is no more material to dig the workers and queen can get stressed and the queen could actually start to devour her own workers and larvae. Please make sure to offer them a protein source and honey source to keep them alive and move them out as soon as possible. All you need is a secure container with digging material and enough depth to create tunnels. Most gel farms just steal nearby worker ants from a colony too. If you are going to start one up. Collect your own queen when the young queens start their flight.
