I have seen YouTube videos of large terrariums with trees in it for the weaver ants to build nests. I don't have the space or terrarium setup for this. I was just wondering if others have found a way to keep green weaver ants successfully and happily in a different setup?

In an older ant book of mine in a lab setting they were able to keep a small colony using a "tree of test tubes" using test tubes a support stand and many extension clamps. but this was a short term solution. Although I suppose you could just keep adding extension clamps and support stands but that seems like a poor solution.

Interesting, I will look into this. It's one of those things I want my colony to be happy and have a simple yet effective home built.
