Formiculture came online on September 10th of 2013!

To celebrate Formiculture's anniversary I am holding a draw to give away some ant supplies.

I haven't made formicariums for several years, so my selection is less than what I've had in previous years. Still found a few goodies to act as prizes.

 

There will be one winner who will have a choice of one of the following:  
  • Five 18mm x 150mm test tubes, waterer, pipette, mixing spoon, and hummingbird nectar.
  • Small outworld (4x4x4") (Steel mesh on aeration hole on lid. One connection port - will come with a section of tubing that fits)
  • 5x7x5" container with driftwood. Entrance can be plugged to keep it a foraging area, opened for species that like outposts (Camponotus, etc), or you can see if a colony might like it (tunnels are a bit big for many species though).
 
The person who wins the draw will only have to pay shipping.  Shipping is very likely between $15-25, but feel free to ask for a quote (please provide your country, state/province, and postal code when asking).

If you wish to be included in the draw, please reply to this thread and include something like "Count me in" or "Please include me".  
The last day to join the draw is September 30, 2019!   (Midnight according to Mountain Time)

I will use https://www.random.org/lists/ to pick the winner.

That nest with the driftwood looks amazing so definitely count me in :D
Hey there. Uhm... I guess a lot of people put what colonies they own here so let's just follow the herd I guess. 

 

 

Ants I keep:

 

Lasius Neoniger (Around 23ish workers)

Tetramorium Immigran (8 Workers)

Myrmica Queen (Not 100% on species)

Formica Subsericea (No workers)

 

I guess people also have a random quote so here's mine
