    What's up, AC Family? Wow so different uploading in the middle of the week. Even if these videos are short they do take a long time to edit but I wanted to explore whether something like this was a good compromise for 2 videos a week. Do let me know what you guys feel! Though the votes at the time of writing this are 85% for this series, I'm still not sold yet as to whether this shall continue or if it should just be once a month type of thing. I also think those wanting updates on the other colonies and ant keeping tips may find ANT BITE WEDESDAYS appealing. What do you think?

                I imagine that perhaps the exterminator would have to take an ant to make a biosample. Perhaps that may open the door to the extermination of other difficult to remove pests?

                  First I heard “Yanny”, then I went to take a piss and after that I heard “Laurel” all the time. So creepy.
