Discussion on artificial ants nests including Test Tubes, Soil Nests, Foraging Areas and Ytong Nests
#22317
I have an AntKit nest 04 with M. Rubra
I would like to make sure it is dark ( they like dark ) but have easy access to add water to the sponges regularly to maintain humidity.
I have some red acrylic cut to size but wondered what you guys have done in terms of a black-out for the nest?
Any imaginative solutions to making sure the nest is dark but with access?
Thanks

When they're in test tubes I wrap the tube where the queen would be in decorators tape but leave it without tape where the water reservoir is and also where the cotton wool bung is so I can see if there's ants near the cotton wool when I go to open it
