Notes[edit]

  • Important note. plastic and vinyl smells from tubes can kill the whole colony. I used vinyl tubing wash it. connected it to the nest. 24 hours later Ants started dying in mass. I disconnected the tubes. lost almost 50 more ants in 3 days after disconecting the tubes. 
  • I recommnd putting any n plastic, or vinyl in water for 3 days minimum. to take smell away.
