Macro One

Macro One

The upgraded Macro One offering the best possible home for your ant colony.


This size 1 Macro nest can easily house your queen with 30-200 workers dependent on species, making it the perfect first nest for your queen and initial workers.


The Macro range now features 15mm deep chambers as standard, allowing both small and large species to grow in comfort. The natural curved chambers, combined with ventilation in the covers allow vital airflow and make it easy to achieve the perfect temperature gradient. All our ventilation holes are 0.2mm in diameter which will contain even the smallest ants.


The hydration chamber contains our upgraded ultra absorbent Seramis clay granules to retain moisture for longer than standard sponges, meaning less disturbance for your colony.


Each nest is made from matt black Perspex acrylic with a black floor. The black floor makes it really easy to see and photograph your colonies brood and larvae, with many species really popping against this background.


Our new upgraded 13mm outer diameter ports use the larger tubing so your bigger species have more room to explore and offer smaller species a virtual ant highway. The copper port inserts make swapping things around a breeze. To finish the look, the nest features copper feet so that you can run your heat cable under the desired parts of the nest.

Our test tube adaptors and our stunning junction boxes attach with ease for countless expansion options.
