  • Our very own gravity assisted feeders allow your ants to actively feed on our liquids without a large risk of drowning or getting trapped inside the feeder.

     

    What makes our feeders better than the average feeders on the market?

    They are not made from Poly lactic acid (PLA) we use a much stronger material which will last a long time.

    Extensive research and development with independent testing

    Stainless Steel Mesh inside the feeder to prevent ants from getting trapped in the feeders especially small ones.

    An overflow system to prevent liquid leakages inside an outworld which makes it easier to keep the nest clean.

    The overflow system doubles up as a feeding trough.

    4 colours White, Green, Grey and black.

     

    Dimensions of all feeders in millimetres (mm) Width(W) and Height (H):

    5ml feeder: W:30mm H:51.5mm

    3ml feeder: W30mm H:36mm

    2ml feeder: W30 H33mm

    1ml feeder: W30 H:29mm

     

    They go well with our very own “Sugar Shakes” that can be found in store.

    So, what you are waiting for give them a try!

     

    How to use:

    We recommend using a pipette to add to add any liquids of you can simply do this by hand and dipping the glass vial in a cup or mug or adding freehand.

    We advise when trying to tighten use the method by matching the thread of the feeder with the screw of the glass vial and trying to align and rotating anticlockwise this will usually result in a click which means both the thread and the screw have aligned and you can now tighten clockwise.

    If you think you have crossed the threads over simply undo the feeder and try again, it can happen.

    Try not to overtighten the feeder, just hand tighten but not with too much force.

    To undo the feeder simply rotate anticlockwise.

    Sometimes if any sugary liquid is stuck inside the feeder, it can cause the feeder to be difficult to untighten, simply run the feeder under warm water and untighten and should fix this issue.

    We recommend cleaning the feeder between using it by simply running under warm water, a cotton bud could also help if there are any debris.

    What makes our 3D printing process so different?

    We have obtained the highest performing 3D printers in terms of price to performance and often rated top in terms performance at the higher end of the market. This insures we have the very best and latest 3D printing technology at our disposal ensuring the best possible quality of 3D printing.

     

    What sets us apart from the competition?

    3D printed products for ant keeping we believe are not up to standard in terms of durability as pretty much every company uses a product called PLA which is also known as poly lactic acid a “biodegradable” plastic. This polymer absorbs moisture over time after printing which can degrade its structure and make it more fragile and brittle which makes it less reusable, and it also can degrade and melt with warm water from a tap which we think it is unacceptable and the industry needs to change so here we are.

    PLA is not recyclable in local recycling facilities in the UK currently via domestic recycling and the only way PLA would breakdown in months is if you personally compost it and in landfill this product can last decades or even 100s of years potentially before its breakdown, so conditions have to be met for this product to biodegrade which we think is misleading to consumers in general.

    We do not use PLA in our 3D printed products in any form, this means that we use a higher quality plastic that requires a higher quality printer and this plastic costs more and is harder to work with as well as requiring a higher temperature to manufacture increasing our costs of production.

     

    How we plan to be more environmentally friendly?

    Our aim is to use this plastic to create higher quality and much more durable 3D printed products targeting reusability. We are talking products that would be good to use years down the line and avoiding you having to put them into landfill in the first place by doing this we are hoping to lower yours and our carbon footprint over the long term and means you spend less money on poor quality products that do not last long.

     

    Our product testing?

    As we are new to the 3D printing market, we have done tons of research and development. We do inhouse testing over weeks and in some cases months with our colonies before we release the products to independent testers, they are experienced ant keepers with many colonies and different species types in which we gain their honest feedback. If there are issues with our products in the second stage, we will revise our products and then we will test them once more. This process insures you only get the very best quality. IF there are issues with your products you can always contact us, and we are happy to find a solution. Just like we helped revolutionise ant keeping making it more accessible with much better customer service and quality of ants we are going to do the same to 3D printed products related to ant keeping.
