I love keeping ants. They’re low maintenance, fun to watch, and a fantastic teaching and outreach tool. Kids and adults alike get excited to see the inner workings of a functioning ant colony, complete with queens, workers and brood. And fortunately, there are more and more resources available to the amateur ant-keeper. Unfortunately, some of these resources can cost you a bundle. I have embarked on a quest to make my own custom formicarium as cheaply as possible.
