they are many fine home done nests here, it great to all the different setups and ideas out there.
Here's what I did last summer..."
Exactly why I started it. I was hoping it would be just people posting their pictures only (hence the title). Oh well, it's still 80% photos.

Forum Overlord,and Basic English Cop/Enforcer/Police.
Here is one that I have had made for a bit now, I just recently had the chance to take some pictures of it. I went through a couple trial runs with it, until
I finally came out with one that I was happy with. It is an acrylic 1g fish aquarium that I bought at Walmart for $20. The block is made out of a sand mix
concrete (no agregate), that I mixed up. The surface acts as a foraging area, and also has a place where you can add water. It has a built in 5w light bulb
for a light/heat source, turning the light off/on I can somewhat stimulate day and night.
Somthing that I will not do again is get another acrylic tank. I knew that it scratches easy, but I thought that I could be careful enough no to. I was
wrong, even though the scratches are very minimal and do not affect viewing very much at all, it is somthing that bothers me. Next time I will just have to
wait till I find some glass ones or look harder.
The screen in this next picture is ordinary window/door aluminum screen doubled up to make the spacing smaller, below this is an empty beer can with the lid
cut off, the concrete runs about halfway down the inside of the can so water can slowly wick into it. I left the bottom half of the can with no concrete
inside so that if the water level does happen to run below the concrete level there will still be some water left to slowly evaporate. Just kind of a safety
feature so that the humidity should not plummet. I also would like to try and plant some moss, grass or some plant on the screen to give them atleast a
little bit thats natural. Here is a quick drawing I made up with Photoshop of a cross section.
In this next image you can see some tunnels that are much much smaller than the rest I hope to have a dual colony setup in this one, hopefully they will get
along. I have seen both of these species live under the same rock together so it should work. The 2 sizes of tunnels do not intertwine and are at opposite
ends of the setup to minimize interaction.

We have 2 feet of snow right now, and the ground is pretty frozen. The only places the ground isn't frozen is around my house and I have been digging all
around it try to find some ants.
I am getting antsy
