Fluon® Now available on Amazon.com!
What is Fluon?
Fluon is a milky-white, slippery plastic resin that, once applied to the vertical walls of an insect habitat, pet food bowl, or other plastic, glass, or smooth metal surface, will prevent ants or insects from crawling past the nearly invisible barrier. Once they reach the barrier, they will slip and fall back to the bottom. Properly maintained, the barrier can last for several months and is completely non-toxic.
Fluon is a laboratory-grade product used by entomologists world-wide to prevent ants and other insects from escaping their container or habitat.
Our Fluon is compatible with any smooth surface such as glass, plastic, or polished metals. Use it on vertical surfaces in nest and foraging areas from manufacturers such as Tarheel Ants, Ants Canada, and ANTSTORE formicaries.
What makes byFormica's product different?
I knowthe byFormica FeedOn Liquid Feeder sucks. It breaks, it leaks, it drowns ants, it looks like it was forged with the tears of kidnapped Chinese children. . .
- Absolutely no leaks, even if ants place debris on exposed liquid or it is tipped over
- No sucked up or drowning ants, even tiny ants
- Convergent 16-channel circumferential design replenishes lost liquid gradually and evenly
- Small size fits in any setup
- Food discovery from literally any direction
- Easy to clean
From the Amazon product detail page:
The byFormica LIGHTYEAR® Liquid Ant Feeder replaces our old liquid feeder, and has been redesigned with ants in mind to bring you the absolute best gravity-assisted feeder ever made. It is so versatile, it can be used with small ants, large ants, and even feeders such as crickets and roaches!
Two sizes for versatility: The one-inch-tall reservoir holds up to 2 CC of liquid feeding solution. In doing so, it fits into foraging areas where larger reservoirs either can't, or would be too cumbersome, and encourages the user to change the water regularly to prevent mold and bacteria.
The tall 3" reservoir is ideal for mature colonies that have a larger, dedicated foraging area, and is ideal for keeping distilled water or Formula Green 600 available for several days.
Made for ants: Other gravity-assisted liquid feeders have a large opening or trough from which ants drink the exposed liquid, often being sucked into the feeder or drowning. The LIGHTYEAR® Liquid Feeder features 16 small, circumferential holes around the trough, protecting ants from becoming an unintended victim of their food source. Multiple openings allow ants to discover the food source from literally any direction.
Never leaks:Our patent-pending design will not leak when assembled, even if inverted, toppled, or if ants put debris on the exposed liquid. Other liquid feeders simply can not compete.
Perfectly compliments our Formula line of premium ant foods: Use with Formula Blue 100 or Formula Green 600 to reduce the amount of solid waste your ants produce, leaving you with a cleaner formicarium and less overall mess and maintenance.
