Thanks. There's a bunch of Lasius neoniger queens in the cardboard boxes in case anyone was wondering.

All setups are standard setups used in China.

Single, double and quadruple acrylic test tube setups and medium and large plaster nests, with cover glass. 

 

The materials/decorations on the outworlds are by me.

Thanks. Now I'm going to have nightmares of tube monsters and the curly-haired mad scientist surreptitiously orchestrating my demise on the other side of the blacked-out window.

You all have some really fantastic set-ups for your ant keeping. My glory days of ant keeping are past. I usually have a few baby colonies of local species at any one time, then let them go. I try to spend most of my anting time (limited by job and other constraints) in the field, sometimes with camera in hand.

Good ant photography, not easy.

Psst, Mercutia, check your spelling on novaeborcensis - missing syllable. Actually, I first learned it as noveboracensis, too, and it's still that way in older publications. When Barry Bolton produced the world catalog of ants (now updated constantly online as antcat.org), he changed it to the original published version of the name, which we're now using. Why he didn't also change C. pennsylvanicus back to the first published form pensylvanicus, I don't know, but I'm going with it.

This is where I build stuff... yeah, that's my coffee table. :)

And yet not a single sign of coffee....

I've really been curious about Drews set up. Big tanks, cylinders, jars, containers, cabinets...I've really wondered where it all goes. Right next to the crate of records is where!

Haha I don't drink coffee. That apartment was the worst... so cluttered and tiny. I have a real work bench now.
