Hello, I have received my "Crematogaster scutellaris" colony. It has perfectly supported the trip. I didn't expect to receive a queen with so many workers and brood. That pleasantly surprised me. Many thanks again!

The Medium 2nd Generation Ant Habitat was designed by Fourmiculture gathering all our experience and the best know technologies. It allows a keeping on the long run and adapts to the needs of almost all species of ants. Keeping a colony for several years becomes easier and observations are highlighted.


2016 Generation

All our models were refined over time but if Medium proved its reliability, we brought a new vision onto this creation in 2016. Thereby, Medium 2nd Generation boasts a high-end finish and our brand new smart connexion system with an "Open" and "Close" position, and we offer all the required spare parts and services for its long-term use.



A spacious habitat with natural rooms.

Inspired by natural ant nests, the rooms are cut in food-grade Plexiglas. They are numerous to let the colony grow for long. The main central tunnel with two endings toward the foraging arena maximizes the activity of ants and improve the use of space.

All the activity of the colony that is usually invisible inside substerranean rooms reveals through the crystal-clear Plexiglas and its secret organization freely unfolds :management of food, care to the brood, communication... The smallest species feel comportable but the hight of 1cm fits the largest.


A mineral layer is cast on the surface of the rooms for an effective management of humidity. It also brings a natural environment to the ants and a proper bacteriological equilibrium. The habitat remains sound on the long run and ants grow in an optimal way. The material is based on natural stone and is extremely smooth, absorbent and resistant.


Rooms with mineral layer and double humidifier

Essential characteristics of a well-designed ant habitat, Medium receives 2 foam-humidifiers that are connected to the mineral layer inside the rooms. Humidity is conveyed to 2 rooms on the right and 3 rooms on the left. Thereby, ants can choose where to live and Medium adapts to almost all species. For those with very special needs, a modification of the humidification system is made on request.

You will have the possibility to modulate the humidity level by using one or two humidifiers and filling it at a frequency that corresponds to the species. The humidity level is easy to watch thanks to the darker tint of the humid rooms and this mineral layer also gives a long range to Medium : it reaches 3 weeks.


An effective foraging arena.

Renewable anti-escape coating (standard) or hard-wearing one (optional).

In order to feed your ants, we have equipped Medium with a rectangular foraging arena that is very practical and accessible with a built-in lid. Laser-cut grids renew the air to make ants feel free. A hand-made décor is made using natural elements like moss, stones and pine-cone. It is always different and inspired by nature.


The advantage of the foraging arena's high walls is that ants can't climb them even without the lid, thanks to two technologies that we offer :


1/ Standard : A layer of talcum powder is applied before shipping. It can last for several weeks or months depending on the size of the colony and be renewed with a brush.

2/ Optional : Glass strips that are hand-cut with an extreme precision, polished and glued on the walls to receive a hard-wearing non-stick coating to discourage ants from climbing. However, it is sensitive to dust and humidity.


Willing to offer a third solution to extend the environment of the ants and facilitate their keeping, we designed external foraging arenas that we called Observation Spaces. They connect to the nest with a pipe and offer new observations possibilities. Our non-stick coating is applied under the frame that covers the Space, protected from dust and humidity, for an absolute effectiveness that can last a whole life.


New Smart Liaison System. Open or closed?

The space is usually sufficient for a year of growth. What next? Minora 2nd Generation is equipped with a smart and original liaison system : two 9mm holes allows to connect another habitat to the first one when fully colonized (even though ants adapt to the available space) or add a remote foraging arena such as one of our Observation Spaces.


This reliable and practical factory-made liaison system works with partitions which have 2 positions (Open or Closed) replacing the usual rubber plugs.

This system actually gives the chance to manage the circulation of ants without unplugging the connected accessory (foraging arena, tube...) : simply turn the partition upside down to allow or forbid the way!


Durable and advantageous.

Medium is simply bolted and can be taken apart. The foraging arena is easy to access to for cleansing. We offer spare parts (lid, glass) and a refurbishment service for less than a fourth if its price if you want to restore all of its shine after a few years. 

Wishing to ensure that the Medium surpasses your expectations, it receives a meticulous attention before leaving our workshop located in the French Alps.


We also offer purchase used Ant Habitats for recycling and and offer them a new life.
