The Ultimate all-in-one starter kit, this beginner kit is perfect for new ant-keepers, and is great for all of our beginner species, as well as most of our intermediate species.

Just as a warning, the nest is very small, at 4" x 2" x 4". This is a good size for starter colonies and will last through the first year of almost any species of ant. Consider yourself warned. Typically anything larger is unfit for a starting colony, and will result in impaired growth and foraging.
