Considerations when choosing ant farms:
Setting up an ant farm includes the same considerations as any other terrarium or aquarium. Will the antarium/formicarium be used primarily to educate students on the social life of ants, or will it be an exhibit in a private home? One common concern with any type of ant farm is the safety of both the ants and the observers. Proper ventilation is essential, because an improperly ventilated tank can lead to the premature death of the ants and increased mold growth. The tank should also prevent any accidental escapes.
✔️ 🐜Honeycomb design, more suitable for ant growth.
Food and water stations
Ant farm colonies rely on supplies of food and water to survive. This usually means adding ant-friendly foods such as fruit, honey, sugar, meal worms and insects to the tank, along with a supply of clean water. Higher-end ant farms generally include stations where these ingredients can be added easily.
✔️🐜 There is a water tower in the nest area to provide strong moisturizing function. And you receive a jar with nutricious ant food.
✔️ 🐜 Ant farms are rarely if ever sold with live ants. Users must order ants from reputable suppliers. Red harvester ants are the most common breed used in ant farms, followed by carpenter ants. It is important to order a complete colony that includes a queen and a generous worker population.
Ant colonies are surprisingly complex and definitely worthy of scientific observation. This was the basic premise behind the original ant farms (antariums) introduced in the late 1950s. From ads in the backs of comic books or educational supply catalogs, teachers and parents could order a small plastic tank, some sand, and a supply of live carpenter or harvester ants. As the ants set up their new digs, children could observe how members of a society actually work together.
Modern ant farms still use the essential design of the classic sets, with a few adaptations. There are also dedicated feeding and watering stations.
✔️A single nest area can be used as a queen nest for the new queen.

Q: How long will the ants in my farm live?
A: It can be difficult to pin down the average life expectancy of an ant colony in captivity, but the standard estimate is around 6 months. There may be some early losses due to environmental issues, while some colonies can survive for a year or longer.
Q: Do I have to order the ants from a special supplier, or can I just use ants from my own backyard?
A: Generally speaking, it is best to order ants from a reputable scientific supply company recommended by the ant farm's manufacturer. Ant colonies are very complex, and you might not be able to locate a queen and enough workers to establish a successful colony. Harvester or carpenter ants over a quarter inch in length are recommended.
