They will be available on Amazon soon. In the mean time you could buy directly from me if you want.

Would Camponotus Noveaboricensis be able to live in these? :thinking:

 
I would not try to house a wood-nesting species in a dirt nest.

I know that the people involved in developing these say no, but I do recall that dspdrew tried adding wood panels with a certain amount of success early in the development thread. I'd be tempted to fashion wooden inserts rather than 'dirt' and see if it works, but then I'm like that! :)
