The genus Myrmecocystus has a special caste of honeypot ants. These ants need to hang high up, so this nest is ideal for this type.

It can contain up to 100-150 workers depending on the species.

The two modules each measure 10 centimeters wide, 7 centimeters deep and 7 centimeters high.

The bottom module is the nest part and the top module is the harvest area.

Humidification is done through a hole on one side of the nest part which leads to a small box located below the nest. Moisture spreads through evaporation in the nest. The water reserve should be refilled every 7-10 days depending on the temperature.
