- Nest Capacity
The aspersa nest is an accessible and simple nest for beginners! It features a round rim at the top of the lid for escape prevention, a mesh lid for proper ventilation, a removable nest lid in for easy nest access, and grooves in the chambers which offer spaces for smaller species of ants to store their brood.
This is a smaller nest, with a foraging area of 7cm x 7cm x 7cm and nesting space of 7cm x 7cm x 3cm, making it a suitable nest for even very small colonies.
This nest is not suitable for highly destructive ants, such as Camponotus (Carpenter Ants) and Messor (Harvester Ants).
