I present to you... Our Leafcutter pack! Dimensions of the cube nest and outworld are ~2.75 inches. The nest can accommodate Acromyrmex versicolor, Atta Texana, and Atta Mexicana. This comes in a pack that includes:

  • A cube outworld with ventilation
  • A hydrostone nest that uses sand hydration method with two hydration holes
  • 1.5 inches of vinyl tubing
  • Red sand to fill the outworld

We have many options such as:

  • Sand coated (Slight additional cost) or not sand coated nest
  • Blunt tip syringe (Slight additional cost)
  • Extra holes in the nest or outworld for vinyl tubing (No additional cost)

The nest type with the options it's configured with (without syringe) in the pictures featured goes for $16.56!

 

Contact us via PM on Facebook or Formiculture for questions about the nests or about purchasing some and we'll get back to you as soon as possible!

 

Happy Labor Day everyone!

Since It's well past 3PM MST we will now start taking in orders. We already have 2 nests ready to go that can be shipped already. We will also take a look at adding our product for sale on our Facebook page.

I have a small suggestion. You should drill an extra hole on an adjacent side so that it can be connected to other nest ports. Just my 2 cents but other than that it looks awesome.

Thank you for your advice! We appreciate it. We do have that extra option available for free. It's just that we don't have our own plugs to plug up the hole which is why we leave it as optional and don't drill it anyways. I might contact someone to make some for me so I can do that though.

Yesterday was fantastic! We're so happy to have heard people's opinions and advice on how to make our Leafcutter Ant Pack better! We'd just like to say thank you to everyone who took their time to visit this thread and to let you all know that we are still working and developing new nests every day and making our current ones better. Thanks again guys! You rock!

We launched our first ever line of horizontal nests at the Grand Rapids Reptile Expo yesterday and we're proud to announce we're now starting development on a larger nest. It'll be medium sized coming in at 6 inches by 4.5 inches. We'll be experimenting with a new vinyl tubing fitting design, and we'll keep you guys updated as the nest gets further along development.
