Why Fire Ants Eat Cow Poop

Fire ants love cow dung but this is not a good thing! Upon inspecting my yard I spotted piles of cow dung on which fire ants were feasting eagerly. It made me wonder what was in cow dung that the ants loved so much. In this episode we take a look at why fire ants love cow droppings and why this is not good news for my local ecosystem. Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

    You could always compost the poop and spread the compost. It would break down the protein so the ants wouldn't have anything to eat but your still getting the nutrients in soil.

    is it a myth if you move the food source the ants don't find their way back home? Does removing mean using a shovel and helping the fruit trees grow? or would ants still eat it if you mixed it with compost?

    Antscanada ripped me off. He lied to me on the youtube comments about what is included. Now I find out his profit comes from over charging for shipping and forces you to have to make multiple orders before your stuff will hold ants. I watched unboxing videos and asked y the stuff doesn't come with plugs. He said everything that needs plugs come with them they only sell the plugs incase you lose them. He's a liar!

    Question, could you place a dome over the main entrance to the fire and nest and pump in some co2 to kind of euthanize part of the colony? I know they have lots of satelite exits and that the nest go super deep, but that would knock out a large number of them wouldnt it?
