Question about Bose Wave Radio

Ants in the Speaker

This seems unusual, at least to me. A colony of Carpenter ants has moved into the bass speaker cavity of my Bose CD Radio. I've removed the grille (with top of case) and have removed the nest material in the front of the channel, but they have built a solid nest toward the back, where it curves, and it looks like the whole thing has to come apart to get it all out. So, the question is, what are the steps to disassembling it to this level. Does the plastic curving bass channel even come apart, or is it glued together. Kevin

How many ants can i put in the uncle milton light-up gel colony

We have had our ants for 3 days and they don't seem to be interesed in making tunnels. We put in four holes, like the instructions, but they are just staying on the surface. Help?

According to the Uncle Milton site, ants are much less active in the winter. This is probably why your ants are not being active and tunneling.

The ants are not doing anything except for trying to get out. We started three holes for them. Also what do we feed them?

If it;s a gel colony, you don't need to feed them. The gel serves as food and water for the ants. It may be that the ants in your Uncle Milton gel ant farm are not tunneling because they are not used to their new environment, as they are used to dirt. It will take them a little bit of time to get acclimated and then they should start moving.
