***Each Genesis Test Tube Insert Comes With A Free Test Tube***
Genesis Test Tube Inserts are a new ant keeping accessory product from Tar Heel Ants. This test tube accessory provides an alternative flooring to glass while being raised inside a test tube. The Genesis fits test tubes sold at www.tarheelants.com.
The purpose of the Genesis is to counter some of the pitfalls with using test tubes as a primary method for raising ants. Flooding issues are greatly mitigated when using the Genesis Inserts as our Type III absorbent material fills the insert (see photos). Another benefit to the Genesis is that ants no longer will be forced to place brood upon the cool surface of the glass tube, providing a substrate surface that may aid some species larvae during pupation.
We recommend the Genesis Test Tube Feeder (see photos) as an additional accessory for raising ants in test tubes. Together (with the test tube, cotton and water plug) we refer to these as the Genesis Test Tube System.
Also, we encourage you to check out this video by the The Ant Network for their thoughts on the Genesis Test Tube System.
