The Concerning Thing About the New Ant House

This concerns me about our new Ant House! I performed an experiment to try to lure out the wild ants of the area of our future Ant House, but what ended up happening was very scary and concerning! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

    An ant starts off moving grains of sand little by little and over time they build a massive fortress. This is how I see the building of our Ant House. We did this together and I can't wait to create more epic ant videos together with you guys! So what do you guys think about caring for and filming wild ant colonies (endemic species, of course)?

    AntsCanada i have question , you call the invasive species more a pest like but isnt it just the natures law of the fittest ? If it means they overcome the local species it must be because they evolved in a way better then others making them thrive anywhere . I feel like its natures call and there really isnt anything to do about it . The most efficient one outdoes and outperform the lower effective ones and so all these things that make them 'better" i guess is taking into the new generation of ants and will evolve on and on

    I believe keeping ants in the wild is even more exciting because there are unlimited variables they will face! It also will give you(and ant lovers everywhere) the opportunity to learn ways of supporting and strengthening native ants to give them the upper hand over invasives.

    have you thought of setting up your garden so that it is more easily defendable for native species? example, add feeding areas that would be very difficult for an unestablished ant colony to reach. aswell as cool looking defensive positions from which species like the Bighead Ant will be able to more easily see off enemy ant colonies. (think moats, battlements with the slidy stuff ants cant climb on the top of them, castle seige defense kind of stuff)

    Wild colonies sound awesome. I'm also curious what the biggest colony you could possibly make would be. What prevents you from making a colony as big as a house? Does it just fail to expand past a certain point, even if all its needs are met?

The last days of school was near and the ants i assume died of old age because it was a big one, the girl i liked moved away too but i still remember the fun i had watching the ants with her. I think its an awesome idea to take care of wild ants and get to see them from time to time
