I started building my free-standing formicarium, and designed it to contain my ants using a petroleum barrier and an oil moat.

My Thai Tree ants arrived on the 25th of July 2007 and they were very active for the first 6 hours or so as they explored their habitat, with hundreds of ants tidying up.

Many winged ants (alates) were wandering around but thankfully not flying, and they seem to be dying.

The images below show my completed formicarium and my ants, as well as the construction of their habitat.
