After a pair of tweezers and a pipette, a pencil brush is probably the most important tool for an antkeeper to have to help picking up and moving small ants and fragile brood.

Sometimes all you need is a handy little spatula. From gently wiping garbage from a colony in a testtube, slicing beetlejelly, to scraping Redrunner oothecas from eggcartons.
Keeping ants at the right temperature is extremely important, but it's hard to measure inside a nest. This why it's important for an antkeeper to have an infra-red thermometer. Rechargable batteries are included.
Microscope tweezers, thin point
In some situations, like helping an alate that didn't shed her wings, you'll occasionally need tweezers with the best precision and the ability to hold firmly.
Entomological tweezers, catcher
This shorter model is more responsive and the angled tip is excellent to catching chase down running ants with. Also the slightly stronger grip will keep larger ants from pulling themselves free.
Standard tweezers, heavy point
Sometimes you need to be able to apply a lot more force with the tips of your tweezers, like pulling out cotton from a test tube or pre-killing a big cockroach. One of those tweezers you won't use often, but can't do without.
