Product Description

This easy-to-use AC Outworld™ provides the ideal space for your ant colony’s various daily out-of-nest activities and is perfectly designed for ant keeping. The outworld is a very important component to an ant setup, as it creates the ‘outer world’ for your ant colony and offers a place for your ants to forage for food, establish garbage sites, and even dispose of their dead. The health and well-being of an ant colony depends on the outworld you, as their keeper, provide for them.

General Features of the AC Outworld™

The brand new, specially designed AC Outworld™ has many new and exciting features.

1. Size – The AC Outworld™ is 1 foot in length, 6 inches deep, and 5.2 inches tall which is a good amount of ant real estate! As a general rule in ant keeping, the larger your outworld, the better. It allows your ants to perform a lot of natural behaviors, including hunting and foraging, food trailing, building of ant hills, creation of the ant colony’s garbage and burial sites for the dead.

AC Outworld Front

Though spacious, the AC Outworld™ still fits nicely on any table top, counter top, desk top, or shelf and is quite portable, in case you need to transport or relocate your colony.

2. Ant Deterrent Lip – The AC Outworld™ conveniently has a horizontal lip which runs around the top of the outworld. This lip provides an ideal space for you to apply whatever ant deterrent you are using to keep the ants from escaping. Petroleum jelly, fluon/PTFE, talcum powder-rubbing alcohol mixture, and olive oil are examples of popular ant deterrents. With the AC Outworld™ you don’t need to obstruct your outworld view with an unsightly band of ant deterrent on the vertical viewing surface. The lip creates a place where your deterrent does not have to be seen, giving you a clear view of your ants.

Place your ant deterrent, e.g. petroleum jelly, fluon, rubbing alcohol-baby powder mix, or olive oil, onto the bottom of the inner lip to keep your ants from escaping.

3. Shape  – The unique, sleek, elliptical shape of the AC Outworld™ eliminates the chance of your ants clinging on to corners that might help your ants surpass your barrier of ant deterrent, a notorious problem with escape-prone ants housed in rectangular or square-shaped outworlds.

The AC Outworld's corner-less elliptical shape and the top inner lip for your ant deterrent mean that the ants do not have any corners on which to grab a hold to pass your ant deterrent barrier. This outworld is specially designed to contain even escape-prone ants.

4. Clear 360° Viewing  – The AC Outworld™ presents your ants beautifully offering an amazing 360 degree view of your ants in action! The clarity of the acrylic and its sleek design makes the AC Outworld™ an attractive piece for your ant setup.

5. Cover – The cover provides a large mesh surface for good ventilation, which allows for the presence of ‘micro wind’ in your outworld. This is important because it discourages your ants from nesting in your outworld and also allows for fresh oxygen to enter and carbon dioxide to exit your formicarium through your tubing. The cover contains a convenient central handle for easy cover removal and replacement. It can be disassembled if desired for easy cleaning or removal of the mesh.

6. Connectivity – Two AC Outworld™ Portals come free with your kit, which you glue to both outworld exits so you can connect your outworld to any of our two sizes of AC vinyl tubing. Connect your outworld to your formicarium or other outworlds.
