Please make sure you are keeping your ants to the correct humidity. Please note that due to the natural materials used, imperfections, glue spots and/or tiny dents in the arena's surface may be present. Please see the pictures carefully.


Fill the water test tube with mineral water, then put the cotton on so it’s well sucked with water and connect to the outworld.


Connect the nest to the outworld. Leave the whole setup like so for a day at least (2-3 day is recommended). Then remove the cotton ball out of the queen's test tube and connect it to the nest carefully using the queen connection kit provided.


Wrap the ant’s test tube with tinfoil and leave it there until your ant colony is ready to be moved in a nest.


Your ant setup must be kept in no vibrations place (away from daily household activity) at room temperature. Any temperature between 20 and 26 degrees is suitable for most ant species.


Colonies failed due to lack of fresh water supply, lack of food and mostly due to a stressed-out queen.



Water the substrate inside the outworld once a week. Feed your ants into the outworld ONLY.


Don’t expose your ants to direct sunlight or any heat/light source (lamps/bulbs) trying to move them inside the nest quicker or you may harm your queen ant.


It is your responsibility to ensure you have undertaken enough research to be able to look after the insects and provide them with the correct conditions.
