3. Test the openings to ensure that your ant farm features and easily accessible feeding port and ensures an escape-proof design. Add the required amount of clean sand to the ant farm for tunneling and mounding in ant hills.
4. Add clean water to the sand so that the sand is damp, not oversaturated or soggy, with a few beginner tunnels established. When the live ants arrive at their destination, they will probably be hungry and thirsty, it is recommended to add just a little more water to the habitat. Secure any ant way connector tubes connecting to additional habitats and find a stable place to observe the ants at work and play.
5. The ants have arrived! Hurray! Now the fun begins. Our ants arrived in a small tube with instructions and a little food included. We were advised to keep the tube inside of our refrigerator for approxiamtely 15 minutes prioir to introducing to the ant farm habitat. Place a small piece of fruit inside of the ant farm for those hungry ants to feast upon in their new home.
6. Carefully and quickly welcome the ants into the new ant farm habitat by removing the escape-proof cover and then opening the lid to the tube of live ants. Gently shake the tube of ants into the ant farm. Add the ants as quickly as possible to avoid escaping ants.
Important - Do not handle or touch ants directly under any circumstances, as they may possibly bite or sting in defense.
