"I have a 2.5 gallon desert terrarium that sits on my window sill It has a screentop lid to keep the humidity low and allow an extra light to sit on top. Ants have moved in though and are nesting in the soil. I don't know how long they've been there but I just noticed them moving pupae in. I dumped a bunch of water in(there's a layer of marbles and moss to allow drainage) and that seems to have scattered them out for now. How do I get them out for good??? Short of dumping the entire thing and starting over?"See the solution to the ants in a terrarium.
