In this episode of the AntPod, young ant keepers Oscar, Lich, and Cameron join the host to discuss their experiences and challenges in the hobby of ant keeping. The episode offers a fascinating insight into the world of young enthusiasts in this niche hobby.

Oscar, aged 13, started ant keeping four years ago, inspired by AntsCanada. Despite initial skepticism from his peers, he found a supportive community online.

Cameron, also 13, has been keeping ants for about five years and is recognized as “Antboy” in his school.

The conversation covers various aspects of young ant keepers’ experiences, including dealing with friends and classmates, managing time between ant keeping and other responsibilities, and the role of parents in their hobby.

Cameron, for instance, relies on birthday and Christmas money for his ant keeping expenses and prefers DIY setups for their practicality. Oscar also relies on pocket money and gifts for his hobby, while Lich often opts for DIY setups to save costs.

The young ant keepers also share insights on balancing their hobby with school and social life. They manage their time effectively, dedicating certain days or parts of the day to ant keeping, while keeping other times free for friends and schoolwork.
