Last year we had butterflies, and this year we have ants!! Insect Lore is not only a very reasonably priced company, but it truly allows you to bring science into your home in a safe way.
My aunt sent me an email at Christmas after seeing this on the boys wish list. She said "ants? Really Beth, it seems a bit crazy to ask for ants to come IN to your house!" Luckily for us, this container is very sturdy and the ants enjoy their home. :)
