    ***Type III Material - This formicarium is Type III material designed to be harder than Ytong and more resistant to destructive ant species such as "fire ants" and "pavement ants".  In addition to being highly resistant to damage, it also maintaints a higher humidity (all other things constant) versus our Type I material.  This makes it our recommendation for smaller ants in general (with some exceptions).
