I just made this little aspirator out of the top of one of the containers I use to put ants in while I'm out anting. This way, once I suck the ant into the container, I can just screw a regular top on it and I have it right where I want it. All I needed to make this was some acrylic tubing, silicone tubing, and some fine mesh steel screen. If you go to test it out though, just make sure you have the steel screen on there first, especially if you're testing it on Pogonomyrmex like I did. :shout:

You sucked up Pogonomyrmex.... 

You the one telling me months ago to make sure I had a screen on the one tube....  :D


I plan to make one eventually.

How long is the short tube?

Just long enough to fit a silicone hose on it.
