Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mold! We followed the instructions carefully and the ants even began to tunnel, and then the entire thing went moldy very quickly. A complete waste of money!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from habitat à fourmis Space Age -Pour l'instant, à chaque fois qu'on essaye de rajouter des fourmis, les autres s'en échappent. Elles se tiennent proches du couvercle au lieu d'aller dans la substance bleue. Ça dépend peut-être de la sorte de fourmis, nous avons pris celles-ci à partir d'une buche pourrie,donc elles proviennent d'une même colonie. Le problème n'est peut-être pas le produit comme tel: l'habitacle est beau et les lumières fonctionnent bien, mais pour l'instant, les graines n'ont même pas encore germé. Peut-être aurions-nous plus de chance en été.

One time Use?

Just wondering if this is a one time use? How long do the ants live and can you reuse the gel for a new colony? thanx
Asked by:
Hello, Our supplier has provided the following information regarding your product inquiry: "Once the plants have reached the lid of the container, or begin to look wilted, it is time to transfer the plants and your ants outside into their natural habitat. You may re-use your habitat as long as the gel has not evaporated." Thanks for shopping Sears and have a great day !

Where are the ants?

Idon't quite understand...if this does not come with a coupon/mail-in certificate for live ants, then where do the ants come from? Do you not receive any ants with this?
Asked by: April1234
It's because it's Canada, the same exact kits sold in the US do come with an order form for ants. The manufacturer suggests "you dig them up" yourself.
