LET’S ANTS

Popular Science - - GOODS -

KEEP­ING ANTS ALIVE ISN’T EASY. A TYP­I­CAL COLONY RE­QUIRES REG­U­LAR FRUIT in­fu­sions, lots of wa­ter, and pro­tein sources such as meal­worms, crick­ets, and fruit flies. Be­cause these pets can’t freely roam your home (that’s called an in­fes­ta­tion), you’ll need to set up a formi­car­ium—the tech­ni­cal name for an ant farm. Choose a species ap­pro­pri­ate for your skill level, then trust these teensy-weensy towns to en­sure your ant ex­per­i­ment is an ac­tive suc­cess.
