Thank you for visiting my web site. It is my intention to teach you the basics of
myrmecology (the study of ants) whether you intend to keep captive ants of your own,
or perhaps conducting a school project, or you just want to learn a little more about
these fascinating creatures.

AntHillsNet - A new company from Latvia that sells ants and ant related products.
I know a few people who have ordered
from them and I have had very good feedback from those customers.
15 Feb 13 - For varied reasons I have decided to create a new forum which I have
called Myrm’s Ant Nest Forum II. It promises to be a better, more mature and professional
forum than the previous one. MANF is now closed to new members and all posting has
been disabled, but the forum still remains for all to see as a ‘Reading Chamber off-shoot
of MANF II. I’d like to thank everybody for their contributions toward MANF and hope
that MANF II will be even more successful. To join the new forum please click on
the forum tab in the navigation bar above.
17 May 2013 - Well, I am back home now for 4 weeks after having been away for 7 months.
Surprisingly my Lasius umbratus colony survived despite having now fresh food during
that time. There colony population dropped somewhat, perhaps only 100 workers, a
few brood, but thankfully the queen is alive and well. 70 members at the new forum
too, which is encouraging.
