AntVac ant catcher
Entolomogists use a thing called an 'aspirator' when they want to collect individual ants. These don't work well when you catch a lot of them, so we designed one that works much better.
Fine point pencil brush
After a pair of tweezers and a pipette, a pencil brush is probably the most important tool for an antkeeper to have to help picking up and moving small ants and fragile brood.
Magnifier with light, white
With a massive 40x magnification, a very large 25mm lens and an actual light, this cheap little magnifier is a surpisingly good alternative for ant indentification to an actual microscope.
Plastic pipettes 0.5 ml , 10 pieces
Tiny plastic 'pasteur' pipettes with a capacity of 0.5ml for putting down small drops of liquid food with high precision. Will last longer if thorougly rinsed after use.
Pipette plastic 3 ml, 10 pieces
Standard plastic 'pasteur' pipettes with a capacity of 3ml for putting down drops of liquid food or filling small feeders. Will last longer if thorougly rinsed after use.
Glass pipette 150mm, replacement
Though better than plastic disposable pipettes, the glass ones are a bit fragile. So occasionally you'll need a replacement. Comes in a shipping protector..
Glass pipette, 150 mm with latex rubber balloon
While plastic pipettes usually can get the job done, glass ones are fully reusable and provide much better precision. This version comes with a larger, softer latex balloon, providing more control.
Glass pipette, 150 mm with PVC balloon
While plastic pipettes usually can get the job done, glass ones are fully reusable and provide much better precision. This version has a cheaper ballon made of PVC.
Sometimes all you need is a handy little spatula. From gently wiping garbage from a colony in a testtube to scraping Redrunner oothecas from eggcarton nooks and crannies.
Microscope tweezers, thin point
In some situations, like helping an alate that didn't shed her wings, you'll occasionally need tweezers with the best precision and the ability to hold firmly.
Entomological tweezers, long
The longest entomological tweezers in our assortment, also has the lightest grip. Most suited for working deep inside a test tube, even capable of gently pickup up egg clusters!
Entomological tweezers, standard
The best all-round entomological tweezers. Every ant keeper should have one of these as being able to easily pick up ants without harm changes everything.
Entomological tweezers, wide
With the wider curved tip these tweezers are the ones you'll want to use when catching ants on the run. Also the stronger grip will keep larger ants from pulling themselves free.
Normal tweezers, thin point
There are plenty of times where you need tweezers but not to pick up ants. This is a nice standard pair of tweezers with a sharp and reasonably strong tip with grooves.
