Ant Facts No 1
Ants are one of the oldest living creatures on earth. Like sharks, they haven't changed much in millions of years. Nature got it right first time, proving the old axiom "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

Ant Facts No 2
Ants are the world's strongest creature in relation to their size. They can carry 10-20 times their bodyweight. They are also the longest living of all insects.

Ant Facts No 3
At any given moment, there are at least 1015 ants living on earth That's a number so large - and involving more zeros than is polite to use in mixed company - that there are two words for it: Billiard (if you're British) and Quadrillion (if you're American, or just easily swayed by the trans-Atlantic influence - I mean, their Billions are tiny compared to ours, aren't they). Anyway, that represents 0.1% of all the planet's insects.

 Tips

Antworks

  • There are two small air holes in the lid of the farm. If you have small ants and are worried about them escaping these can be covered with a piece of tape for a couple of weeks until your ants have settled in.
  • There's enough air in the frame to last an ant lifetime. However, your ants will appreciate some fresh air once a week - just take the lid off for a few minutes and then replace it.
  • Ant behaviour will vary seasonally. If your ants huddle or don't tunnel as much as you expected, don't forget you can always find more and start again
