Glass jar setup
I scooped a bunch termites into a capture vial a few days ago , intending to use as feeder for my ants.
Which I did, but I had a ton left over, of alate nymphs, soldiers and workers.
I forgot about them for a few days, and they had tunneled a bit.
So today I dumped them into a glass jar
There is not quite enough dirt to fully cover the bottom.
I added a large, thick folded piece of damp toilet paper, and some bits of wood from the expired petri dish colony.
A large amount are gathering under the toilet paper.
Thinking about merging the setup up above with this one. that would add a lot more dirt,,,,
