Question about Uncle Milton Ant Farm Gel Colony

1 Answer

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 container with water and something for food (if so, what kind of food?) until they can be put into the gel ant farm?

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.

SOURCE: instructions for ant farm

http://www.unclemilton.com/company/manuals/AntFarmGelManual.pdf

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.

I wasn't given any food or dirt to put in my ant farm. Why should I do?


If you have a gel ant farm, you do not need any dirt or food. The gel serves as both dirt and food for the ants. According to the Uncle Milton site: If you do not have a gel farm, Once a week, remove the top cap and drop in two or three pinhead size pieces of food. You will also need to give the ants a few drops of water every 2 days. Just open the top cap and drop the water in. Please do not overfeed or over water your ants!
