Buy Ant Farm Kits

An ant farm or formicarium is an enclosed area, usually with the use of glass, where ants are raised and fed to live and thrive as a colony. It’s like an aquarium but, instead of fish, you have ants that live in it – and without the water. Mr Toys hosts a range of animal habitat kits like ant farms for your pet hobby. Ant farms are highly educational pet toys because they can teach how ants live in colonies. Ant farms are great, eye-grabbing ornaments that can be displayed in your living room, garage, or garden. If your child loves science and is interested to study biology (the study of living organisms) and entomology (the study of insects), then an ant farm kit is the perfect gift that you can give them.

When Was the First Ant Farm Created?

The first ant farm was created and invented by a French entomologist and polymath by the name of Charles Janet. Yet, the first commercial release of the ant farm was initiated by Frank Eugene Austin, a professor and inventor at Thayer School of Engineering, Dartmouth College circa 1929,. However, the label “ant farm” was patented only in 1956 by Milton Levine, founder of Uncle Milton Industries.
