A Deadly OUTBREAK Is Spreading Within My Ant Colony

A deadly outbreak is spreading in my ant farm, and I don't know what to do. My yellow crazy ant colony, named the 'Golden Empire', has just moved into their brand new terrarium (the 'Crystal Catacombs') but as I was observing them living their lives in their new territories, I noticed signs of a deadly pathogen, a pathogen they've actually dealt with before. I'll need your help, ant lovers! We can solve this crisis together, as we have in the past. Let's hope our ants recover from this! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

    Antscanada lied to me about what is included in the kit. Now I have a antfarm that can't hold ants. I learn his profit comes from charging 1200% mark up on shipping. That's why he forces us to place multiple orders. I'll be reporting him to the bbb.

Some Bee keepers use formic acid to keep the varroa mite away or even remove them from an infested bee hives, with great success.” I might do some more research on this or you can
