So I recently got my Omni nest from AntsCanada, when I put the tube that came with it in the nest entrance, it smelled really weird so I threw it away. Then, I was putting the lid on the outworld when the outworld smelled the same as the tube, did anybody else have this issue. And is so, is it poisonous to ants?

It's probably because it's acrylic. Email antscanada about it. they'll tell you if its normal. I doubt it will kill your ants though.
