Instructions for ant farm

I got my sons ants in the mail but I lost the instructions. How do I transfer the ants to the container properly? I will order instructions for the care of them but I don't have the time to wait for them right now because I am afraid that they might die.

You'll receive 25 to 30 non-breeding adult Harvester worker ants.

Important: Before you open the tube of ants, place the
tube in the refrigerator (not the freezer) for about 15
minutes. This makes the ants less active and easier to
place into the habitat.

When you're ready to add the ants, carefully
open the plastic tube and gently shake or tap
them in. Replace the habitat lid securely.

We got the ants for my grandsons ant farm but because of snow in the NW will not be able to deliver them to him (he has the ant farm) for 2-3 days. They seem very sluggish. Should I put them in another...

According to the Uncle Milton site, they are probably sluggish because it is winter and that is when they are less active. In the meantime, I would contact their customer support, because they recommend putting the ants into the gel farm as soon as possible. Try to create your own farm with dirt and give them 3 drops of water and a crumb of bread in the meantime.

Ant farm tunnels

3 or 4 holes; something about the size of a pencil or soda straw, maybe 4 inches deep. (just put the holes in now myself; can't say whether it'll work or not, but that's what the video shows.)
