Infinite - Dry Nest


"Infinite" range nests and hunting areas are a modular nest and hunting areas system for ants. This means that you can start with a nest and hunting area for your little colony, and add modules as your colony grows.

Benefits of Using an Infinite Range Nest and Hunting Areas System:

  • Expandable: The system can be expanded to accommodate any size colony (ants always prefer small nest overcrowed to large and empty nest).
  • Versatile: The modules can be connected in a variety of ways to create different nest layouts.
  • Escape-proof: The modules are designed to be escape-proof, so you don't have to worry about your ants escaping.
  • Easy to clean: The modules are easy to clean and disinfect.
  • Affordable: The modules are relatively affordable, so you can start with a small system and add to it as you need to.



Dry Nest Area (with Shading Board)

The Dry Nest Area is a modular nest for ant colonies. It is ideal for species that don't like in their nest (xerophilic). It is a square module measuring 10cm with four entrances and three specific sections. The sections can be opened or closed with a red tab, which can also be removed or replaced to control the size of the nest.

This module is ideal for young colonies, from 10-15 workers (depending on the species) when only one section is open. As the colony grows, additional sections can be opened to provide more space. It is important to also provide a hunting area with water and food from the outset.

The Dry Nest Area includes a sheet of red acrylic to filter the light, allowing you to observe your ants without disturbing them. The four sides of the module can be connected to each other, making it easy to create a larger nest system as your colony grows.


  • Modular design for easy expansion
  • Three specific sections with opening/closing tabs
  • From10-15 workers (depending on the species)
  • Sheet of red acrylic to filter light
  • Four connectable sides


  • Provides a safe and comfortable nest for young ant colonies
  • Allows for easy observation of ants without disturbing them
  • Can be expanded as the colony grows
  • Connectable sides allow for the creation of larger nest systems

How to Use:

  1. Start by opening one section of the Dry Nest Area and placing the ant colony inside.
  2. Provide a hunting area with water and food near the nest.
  3. As the colony grows, open additional sections of the nest.
  4. You can also connect multiple Nest and Area  modules together to create a larger nest system.
  5. Monitor the nest regularly to ensure that it is clean and that the ants have enough food and water.


  • Place the Dry Nest Area in a warm location, out of direct sunlight.
  • Provide your ants with a variety of food sources, including protein and carbohydrates.
  • Clean the hunting area regularly to remove waste and prevent mold growth.

With proper care, your ant colony will thrive in the Dry Nest Area .
