The Haven is an all-in-one style formicarium from Tar Heel Ants for medium-sized colonies beyond their initial founding stage. This is one of our original formicaria featuring an ant hill (nest area) on one side sloping down to the foraging are down below.
- Removable Glass Panel using strong magnets
- Side nest entrance
- Coated Chambers with THA substrate
- Professionally carved and naturally dyed Ytong nest
- Water Tower for hydration
- Optional sizes for different species
- Choice of foraging area decor
- Friction-fitted lid
- Dual-ventilation system (vents on top and bottom)
- Micro-screen (stainless steel) vent
Using all-natural dyes, we have developed a method of coloring the Ytong uniformly. This permanent color does not harm your ants, but actually makes the surfaces slightly stronger (not tested for increased PSI) and thus more durable than non-colored Ytong.
Desert Style: White sand with several desert style plants and 1-2 rocks
Forest Underbrush: 3-4 forest plants and 1-2 rocks. Twigs and sticks are added where possible.
Desert Mountain: White sand with several rock outcroppings and one plant
Rocky Woodland: Same as “Forest Underbrush” but with more rocks and less plants. THA substrate is used (looks more like “dirt”, not sand). Twigs and sticks are added where possible.

*****Please NOTE! This formicarium, like all of our other formicaria, are hand-made-to-order. Planning, preparation, and a lot of care go into every single formicaria, every single order. We strive to get your orders completed as soon as we can but as volume of orders picks up during the busy seasons (November through January and May to August/September) we cannot meet our normal quoted shipping times. Please order in advance if possible to give us time to get your formicaria shipped in time to meet your needs. Most small formicaria (founding formicaria plus some like the Casita, Piece of Haven etc.) are shipped within 7-10 days while other larger formicaria such as the Pioneer and Pinnacle take 2-3 weeks or longer when our volume is heaviest. If you have a need for fast delivery we offer you to take advantage of the expediting service and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about this option.
