About 117 Colonies & Ant Farms

Creating a clean, natural environment while allowing full visibility and interaction with your critters of various size and species. We have starter packs such as the 117 Nest providing a full set of ant keeping gear, or collection devices such as the Aardvark allowing the everyday hobbyist to collect insects with minimal damage and loss.

Here at 117 Colonies, we are continually researching and developing new and useful applications to allow you to really enjoy your hobby. Started by Ryan Hubbard in early 2016 with the 117 Hotel and selling to local ant keepers, he found that he had a knack for creating ant nests. Having a long history with critter keeping and attending to all needs as well a background in Architectural and Mechanical Design, creating habitats came as 2nd nature and it shows with the success of every colony or creature in a 117 Habitat.
