Price 20,00 €
A hermetic formicarium for breeding ants with total dimensions of 12.8 cm [length] / 9.7 cm [width] / 10.5 cm [height].
In the S8 formicarium, the socket part is screwed together with screws, and in the case of the arena it is made of strong rubber bands.
The external dimensions of the socket are 5 cm [length] / 9.7 cm [width] / 1.3 cm [height].
The internal height of the chambers in the nest part is 0.8 cm.
The internal dimensions of the arena are 6.9 cm [length] / 8.2 cm [width] / 8.3 cm [height].
Part of the arena has two openings allowing the connection of other nests / arenas with a diameter of 1 cm with the formicarium.
The arena cover / opening measures 6.5 cm [width] 4 cm [length] and has 26 notches for ventilation.
On the front and back walls of the arena there are further cuts, a total of 16 – 8 on the front and 8 on the back.
The nest part has 6 chambers, 4 of which have 3 cuts in the chamber, which gives a total of 12 ventilation cuts in the nest part.
A very big advantage of the formicarium, and more precisely in the nesting part, are sluices of 5 [these are places where the passage of ants to further chambers is blocked].
As the colony grows, new chambers for ants are made available.
