The modular design allows for savvy users to install 3D printed tunnels and chambers in a standard format (3D printer required). Templates are available at www.byformica.com/3D. Meanwhile, two, user-swappable modules are included that should be compatible with most ant species, small or large. Customization tools and materials may be purchased separately, allowing the user to tailor the look and feel of the habitat.
The 1/2″ connection port allows the unit to be attached flush to the wall of an outworld or foraging area. The included Feeding Station provides the youngest colonies with access to a temporary foraging area until the colony grows larger. byFormica’s exclusive Formula ant foods is included, which may be prepared as either a gel or a liquid. Purchase a byFormica Liquid Feeder and Silicone Food Mold to make preparation and feeding easier.
