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.
