Petition Ban the use of Ant Gel Farms as part of the Animal Welfare Act 2006.

We want to ban the practice of unsuitable housing being promoted to the hobby of ant keeping. Gel farms and similar style ant farms, promote destruction of the local wildlife, their barbaric and not designed for the welfare of the creatures being kept, promoting poor husbandry practices.

More details

These nests promote damaging practices to the local wildlife, their not designed to care for the welfare of the creatures being housed, most often the Ants die a horrific death, drowning in the gel as it breaks down, becoming infested with mold and harmful bacteria, these are gimmick nests profiting from improper care and welfare practices.
