Learn all about ants and how they live with this NEW, escape-proof ant-tunneling kit. Ant Mountain has a fascinating inside/outside design which allows kids to watch their busy ants work cooperatively to tunnel, explore and forage throughout their rugged environment. Now anyone can become a myrmecologist (a person who studies ants) with Ant Mountain!When Ant Mountain arrives, redeem the enclosed certificate to receive your ants. Please note that Insect Lore does not supply the ants for Ant Mountain. Instead, send your certificate to our partners at Life Studies (490 S 400 W, Hurricane Utah, 84737). Your vial of 25 (or 50) harvester ants will arrive at your door within 2 to 3 weeks. Budding scientists will be fascinated to learn all about ants and how they live by observing them in this escape-proof ant-tunneling environment. The special design allows kids to watch as their busy ants work cooperatively to tunnel, explore, and forage throughout Ant Mountain.
  • TURN STUDENTS INTO MYRMECOLOGISTS: They'll proudly let their family and friends know that it stands for a person who studies ants.
  • REDEEM THE CERTIFICATE TO RECEIVE YOUR ANTS: When Ant Mountain arrives, send in the enclosed certificate, and a vial of 25 (or 50) harvester ants will arrive within three weeks. You will pay an additional shipping fee. (Extreme temperatures may require extra delivery time. Please note that live ants cannot be shipped to Oregon or Hawaii.)
  • TEACHES RESPONSIBILITY: As kids learn to care for their ants, they learn a valuable lesson in responsibility. Harvester ants will live two to four weeks in Ant Mountain. Feed them tiny bites of celery, carrot, or apple (about the size of a popcorn kernel) every three days. They also need a few drops of water every three or four days.
