Heating Mat with Thermostat for Ant Farm Ants Nest Small 5V 4W
The Heating Mat with Thermostat for Ant Farm Ants Nest is a must for exotic ants and is designed to keep your ant colony warm and cozy during colder seasons. This small but powerful 5V 4W mat comes with a built-in thermostat to maintain a consistent temperature, ensuring the ideal living conditions for your ants. The mat is easy to install and can be attached to the bottom of your ant farm for optimal heat distribution.
The mat operates on 5 volts, making it energy-efficient and completely safe for children and adults alike.
The heating mat provides the following temperatures inside the ant farm:
- Low: 2.2 to 4.5 degrees Celsius higher than the ambient temperature
- Middle: 5 to 9.5 degrees Celsius higher than the ambient temperature
- High: 10 to 16 degrees Celsius higher than the ambient temperature
All the temperature measurements were taken at 20 degrees Celsius. The temperatures may vary due to Ant Farm's size.
You must heat only 1/4 of the ant farm's area or you might cook the ants alive! Avoid heating the watering area to prevent condensation inside the ant nest.
Keep an eye on the ant farm's temperature using an Infrared Thermometer or similar and switch the heating mat off if necessary.
