Ant farms: August 2012 Archives

I bought the uncle Milton's ant farm for my son. We want to purchase some ants, but I don't want to have to replace them every few months. Do you have any suggestions for how to do this.

Thank you for your time.



Dear Melissa,

Good to hear you are already on your way to starting an ant farm! Luckily, colonies can last much longer than a few months, and we have had some very detailed posts on building and maintaining ant farms.

Please follow the instructions here, and here for a successful, long-living ant farm!

Good luck!
