Does anyone know where I can buy some clear non toxic resin. It shouldn't be harmful to live insects once fully cured. Anyone know of a specific brand?

Curious myself. Knox Unflavoured Gelatine can be used like a resin but after dried, unsure if it gets messed up with adding water/moisture to it again. Kinda want to try it.


Have you been to the Ant Keeping Wiki?
 
Legality of shipping & transporting ants in US

 

It is illegal on a boat. It is illegal in your coat.
It is illegal in a plane, car, and train. Why must you be such a pain?
I do not care if it is in your hair. Do not put your queen ants there!

Just make sure you let it fully cure.

I had ordered this stuff as claims low-oder and no-VOC: https://www.amazon.c...n/dp/B074R774S6

 

But I have not yet had a chance to try it out.
