Me and my Animals have moved.
We have moved to a new home.
So I made and I am still makeing a new setup suitable for my Lasius Niger.

Old an new elements
The plaster nests are still the same as last year.

There are two new foraging areas for each colonie.
Long plastic tubes connect the different sites. with each other.

Lasius Niger colonies need a lot of space.
I have two of them. On the pictures you can see how they are kept.

Obviously the two Colonies are strictly separated.
